Structure of clathrate


PhD student in Inorganic Chemistry

Closing date: 31 January 2017.

The project concerns the study of the stability of clathrate hydrate compounds at extreme pressure conditions. Clathrate hydrates are inclusion compounds in which water forms a host that encapsulates small concentrations of guest molecules, like CO2 and CH4. Clathrate hydrates occur widely in nature and have important environmental implications.

Extended DREAM: Multiple-length scale approach to functional nanomaterials

A team led by German Salazar-Alvarez, researcher at the Department of Materials and Environmental Chemistry, has been awarded 10 MSEK by the Swedish Research Council, VR, to develop sample environments that will allow the in-situ and in-operando multiscale characterization of novel functional nanomaterials such as biomaterials, battery components, and magnetic nanoparticles.



Inorganic Days

The conference will be held in Utsikten, Nynäshamn, 12-14 June 2017 and provides a meeting place and a platform for new collaborations for all inorganic chemists. There will be lectures given by internationally recognized experts as well as by PhD-students. Registration will open 15 December 2016.

Understanding how the self-assembly of nanoparticles proceeds

The discovery that the assembly of synthetic nanocrystals proceeds through a two-step process where nanoparticles first agglomerate into an intermediate disordered state that then rapidly transforms into large ordered arrays is similar to what has been recently observed for many synthetic crystal and biominerals.
