The group is led by Professor Grazia De Angelis and is located in the Institute of Materials and Processes, School of Engineering, University of Edinburgh.
The work is focused on the study and development of materials, processes and simulation methods for fluid separations, CO2 capture, biofuels upgrading, water purification, packaging, biomedical processes.
The research approach is problem-oriented and adopts a systematic strategy that encompasses experimental testing, molecular, macroscopic and multiscale modeling tools.
Current projects include
- Mixed matrix membranes for removal of uremic toxins from dialysate water (wearable kidney) Project 1 - Project 2 - Project 3
- Application of Machine Learning to thermodynamic models for fluid transport and separation properties of polymers and membranes
- Exploration of novel biodegradable materials and green solvents in packaging and membrane separation
- Diffusion and permeation of hydrogen and other gases into barrier materials used for pipelines and tanks
- Multiscale models for fluid transport and separation properties of polymers and membranes
