Chemical Technology

The Laboratory for Chemical Technology (LCT) integrates chemical science and engineering in its research on catalysis, polymerization, kinetics, reactor design and process design. LCT is part of the Department of Materials, Textiles and Chemical Engineering within the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture at Ghent University in Belgium and member of the Centre for Sustainable Chemistry (CSC) of Ghent University. LCT aims at research excellence and bottom-up innovation in the framework of technological, industrial, and societal challenges.

Emulsion polymerization set-up

Emulsion polymerization can be experimentally conducted at various reactor sizes (up to L scale) to study nanoparticle synthesis, accounting for all length and time scale. Chain length and particle size distributions can be measured upon further analysis.
