Design of Materials using Arrested Microemulsions

The project will explore design of materials using nanostructured glasses. Presently our lab is preparing and charactertising these glass-like materials. An incoming student can take the project towards design of structured nanocomposites.  Experimentation will be based on tools required to characterize the rheology, microstructure and the phase diagrams. Interested students can approach me and also talk to the DD student presently working with these materials.

Freeze Dryer

Freeze dry_Labconco.jpg

Freeze drying or lyophilization is the process of drying a material that has been frozen, without going through the liquid phase. The FreeZone 2.5 Liter Benchtop Freeze Dry Systems have dual refrigeration systems for small load of samples with very low eutectic points. The dehydration technique enables liquid or slurry products which have previously been frozen to be dried under a vacuum.

Millipore Water purification system

MilliQ Water purification sys_1.jpg

Model details: Elix 3 UV Water Purification System (120 V / 60 Hz), Millipore
Principle:
Tap water initially passes through a Proguard pretreatment pack; removes particles and free chlorine from the water. The water is then pressurized with a pump and then is purified by reverse osmosis (RO). The RO product water then passes through an electrodeionization (EDI) module; reduces levels of organic and mineral contaminants. The removal of organics, ions and bacteria has been monitored using, respectively, a TOC analyzer and ion chromatography.  read more »
