Our laboratory provides access to several high p,T specialized techniques.

It is equipped with two fume-hoods, bench top extraction systems, and safety equipment as required for training HQP in high-pressure and high-temperature (high-p,T) fundamental and applied research work.  In addition to a high-p,T UV-visible flow cell for spectroscopic studies under hydrothermal conditions, the lab has two systems for synthesis of nanomaterials and aerogels using supercritical carbon dioxide,  a tubular oven for post-synthesis heat treatments under different atmospheres, two Gamry Reference 600 potentiostats with access to a full set of electrochemical characterization methods including electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. Students in our group have also access to other characterization techniques such as: Raman spectroscopy, FTIR, ICP-OES, AAS, HPLC, BET, NMR, XRD, etc.

Don't hesitate to contact us (liliana.trevani@uoit.ca) if you think we can contribute with infrastructure and/or expertise to any of your fundamental or applied research projects. We are always open to collaborations with other research groups and the industry.
