Comment/Description


- Thermodynamics of pure solids: melting/crystallization; glassy and amorphous state.
- Thermodynamics of solid-gas equilibria: adsorption and sublimation.
- Thermodynamics of solid-liquid equilibria: solubility in aqueous and non-aqueous systems; solid solutions; supercritical fluids as solvents.
- Kinetics of dissolution/precipitation processes: chemical vapor deposition; drug release; hydrothermal processes.
- Characterization of solids: contact angle, adsorption techniques, IR spectroscopy, electron microscopy.
- Discrete models of dissolution/precipitation processes: diffusion limited aggregation; random-like and ballistic-like deposition models
- Advanced discrete models: surface wettability; adsorption and precipitation of (bio)polymers.
