20.03.2017 - Dr. Molina on March 29th
Dr. Ricardo Molina from the Institute of Advanced Chemistry of Catalonia (IQAC-CSIC) will give the seminar “Plasma polymerization in contact with liquids” on Wednesday, March, 29th, in Bochum. This lecture explores some routes to synthesize polymers in liquid environment by means of dielectric barrier discharges (DBD). The properties of the treated surfaces, e.g. surface energy, are addressed as well.
Since 2009, Dr. Molina works as Tenured Scientist at IQAC-CSIC in Barcelona, Spain. Being an expert in remote plasma treatments and DBD applications, his work is focused on plasma treatment of polymeric materials, plasma sterilization, plasma in liquids (elimination of contaminants in wastewater and polymerization) and plasma in agriculture (plasma activated water, seed germination, etc).
