The Faculty of Science and the Leiden Institute of Chemistry are looking for a postdoctoral researcher in physical chemistry:
Direct Separation of Two-Dimensional Materials from the Surface of Liquid Metal Catalysts
For a student project Irene Groot was interviewed about LMCat
In collaboration with Sensu we have produced a film to show the role that graphene could play in our daily lives, how LMCat's production technique works, and how the consortium is capable of taking graphene production to the next level.
The LMCat reactor is in the phase of fabrication and assembly (see movies).
Beside the reactor itself, the main peripheral equipment, including the Raman probe, the gas handling system, and their electronic controlling equipment and software are being developed.
The aim of the Liquid Metal Catalysts (LMCat) project is to develop instrumentation/methodology capable of studying the ongoing chemical reactions on a molten catalyst, with the goal to open up two new lines of research:
Are you interested in working with an international team of researchers, with an experimental setup at the forefront of instrumental development?
Join the ESRF, the European Synchrotron!
The LMCat project has been started in January 2017. We are at the design and building stage of the instrumentation for in situ studies of the ongoing chemical reactions (in our case graphene formation) on a molten catalyst.
