Molten Salts Laboratory

Research Fields top

Electrochemistry of molten salts and ionic liquids:
  • Physico-chemical properties of ionic liquids (density, viscosity, electrical conductivity)
  • Electrodeposition of metals from ionic liquids
Physical chemistry of materials:
  • Structure and properties :transport( diffusion coefficients, electrical conductivity, density), thermodynamic properties(phase change temperatures, enthalpies, thermal conductivities) and their applications
  • Thermal (DSC) and structural (Raman and IR) characterization of the TiB2-borate glass and epoxy-PEG composites.
Environmental protection:
  • Storage of solar, geo and residual energies in phase change materials (PCM) at low temperatures (<70ºC)
  • Industrial waste vitrification and physico-chemical characterization of synthetic glasses with compositions reproducing the vitrified industrial ones.
  • Obtaining of new nanocomposite materials with applications in green houses
Obtaining and characterization of bio-vitroceramics layers on metallic substrates with applications in implantology.
