DIMAS participates in COSMIC european project

DIMAS is participating in the COSMIC (European Training Network for Continuous Sonication and Microwave Reactors) european project.
The kick-off of the project was held in Leuven (Belgium) in March 2017, where all the 12 partners (beneficiaries and partner organizations) participated and exchanged discussions about the future of the project.
All the 15 students that will be devolping their PhD in the frame of this project also participated in the kick-off meeting and also discussed with the host partners the activity to be done during their visits along the duration of the project.
DIMAS will host four of these students: two of them will arrive from KU Leuven (Belgium), one from UCL (UK) and the last one from Universidad de Zaragoza (Spain).
The student hosted by DIMAS will perform experiments with the microwave facilities available at DIMAS laboratory.


The project science and technology objectives are to develop:

1.-Resource-efficient multiphase reactions in the fields of organic synthesis (C–H, C=C and C=C bond activation) and nanoparticle synthesis (for use in catalysis and health applications);
2.-Intensified reactors that efficiently integrate milliflow technology with ultrasound and/or microwave actuation;
3.-Knowledge-based assessment and decision methodologies to evaluate and select process-intensification technologies.
