What you will be doing
The present PhD position is open under the framework of a bilateral collaborative project with University of Vienna aiming to develop porous materials from renewable feedstock for predefined applications.
We are looking for a Master Student who is expected to strongly contribute to this ambitious project through the development of innovative chemical pathways combining organic and polymers chemistries to adapt selected renewable feedstock for the formulation of stable emulsions.
Organic and polymer synthesis will be developed and state-of-the art analytical techniques (FT-IR, high resolution as well as solid state NMR, Mass-spectrometry, XPS, etc) will be applied for in-depth structural characterization.
The interfacial properties and emulsion forming behavior will be studied before the processing to porous materials. The morphological, mechanical and thermal properties of the resulting materials will be evaluated, among others, by SEM, TEM, BET, TGA, DSC and DMA.
