Overview

The Advanced Techniques for the Analysis of Novel Materials Strategic for Sustainability Transitions: I. Bioplastics focus will be mainly on PhDs, but master degree’s and post-docs are also welcome.

The student will have access to cutting-edge instrumentation present at DCCI, most of which is part of the CISUP, the Center for Instrument Sharing of the University of Pisa .

 These will be:

  • analytical pyrolysis – gas chromatography – mass spectrometry (Py-GC/MS) with micro UVirradiator system,

  • Vocus 2R CI-TOF mass spectrometer,

  • Bruker Avance NEO 500 Solid State NMR Spectrometer,

  • Thermogravimetric Analyzer-Gas chromatography/Mass spectrometer TGA-GC/MS – TGA8000-Claurus 690 GC/Claurus SQ 8T MS + Thermogravimetric Analyzer/Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy TGA/FTIR - Q5000 IR (TA Instruments)/Cary 640 (Agilent Technologies).

The lessons will contain both a theoretical introduction (with a focus on applications) and laboratory practice. The curriculum also contains explanations on how to critically analyse the data.

This program will provide the interested student with detailed information on the advanced instrumentation encountered and an overview of the potentialities of different approaches to characterise a material. The new skills will be precious for the educational background of the student, who will primarily be a Chemistry student but may also be of Chemical Engineering and other technical-scientific areas.

Programme Structure

  • This program aims to offer access to dfferent advanced instrumentation and to help the student understand the potentialities of this peculiar equipment and of a multi-technique approach to characterise a material of interest.
  • It will enhance the ability to face challenges concerning the characterisation of materials. This skill is crucial in the frame of the main pillars of nowadays research, so often connected with new materials for the environment and green chemistry.

Audience

Firstly PhD students but master's degree students and post-docs are also welcome.
