Multi-purpose unit for the acquisition of intrinsic chemocatalytic kinetics (FLEX-Cat) Ghent University
FLEX-Cat is a unique, continuous, multi-purpose set-up with on-line analysis tools for intrinsic catalytic kinetics data acquisition, more specifically at well-controlled, (near)-atmospheric pressures. Modularity and flexibility will be one of the design/construction imperatives such that the set-up can serve R&D within a wide variety of catalytic reactions/processes In this way FLEX-Cat will provide the promoters of this application ...

Fundamental study of the growth kinetics and conformality of thermal and plasma-enhanced atomic layer deposition Ghent University
Growth kinetics of ALD and PE-ALD: this work studies fundamental questions about initial nucleation, the evolution of the surface roughness and crystallinity of the films during deposition. Conformality of ALD and PE-ALD: this study aims to characterize the conformality as a function of aspect ratio, temperature and pulse times. A second goal is to model the conformality.

Modeling of diffusion and reaction kinetics in nanoporous materials. Ghent University
My project is situated in the field of porous materials. These condensed state materials require a multi-scale approach, because processes occur on a range of time and length scales: from quantum pgysics/chemistry at the atomistic scale up to diffusion at the nanoscale. This project will study the materials with computer experiments, in order to use the new chemical/physical insights about diffusion, adsorption and kinetics for the ...
Kinetics of the oxidative dehydrogenation of ethane n Ni based materials at high pressures and moderate temperatures Ghent University
Ethane oxidative dehydrogenation is a reaction characterized by high desired product selectivities at low reactant conversions. Performing such reactions at higher pressures and moderate temperatures has promising perspectives. Aiming at proposing a commercially relevant reactor design, CeO2 modified Ni based catalysts will be synthesized, characterized and tested. A microkinetic model will be developed and embedded in a multiscale reactor ...
