Summer School and Workshop in Calorimetry and Thermal Analysis 2018
Calorimetry and thermal methods in material science
Lyon, France - June 17 - 22, 2018
There will be two parallel sessions (one in French, one in English), in two different classrooms for French and English speaking people.
Calorimetry and thermal analysis methods, alone or linked to other techniques, will be described and applied to the characterization of catalysts, oxides, metals, supports, adsorbents, polymers, composites, food, pharmaceuticals, mesoporous solids, ionic liquids, phase change materials, heat storage materials, hydrogen storage materials. Examples will be given in various domains: catalytic reactions, air and wastewater treatment, clean and renewable energies, refining of hydrocarbons, green chemistry, hydrogen production and storage, CO2 capture, interseasonal heat storage, food chemistry, polymers...
The described techniques will be the following: calorimetry, DSC (differential scanning calorimetry), TGA (thermogravimetric analysis), DTA (differential thermal analysis), TPD (thermoprogrammed desorption), TPR/TPO (thermoprogrammed reduction/oxidation), and coupled techniques as Calorimetry - Volumetry, TG-FTIR, TG-DSC-MS, DSC - Gas Chromatography, Calorimetry - UV / Visible spectroscopy, Calorimetry - HPL Chromatography, Titration and flow calorimetry, modulated DSC, ...
Thematic workshops on case studies will be organized
according to the scientific interests of the participants (i.e.
capture, hydrogen storage and production, thermochemical heat storage,
polymer decomposition, catalytic active sites characterization,
experimental set-up and instruments calibrations, experimental data
interpretation...). Participants are invited to submit their wishes in the
registration form ("Remarks" section).
Dates:June 17 - 22, 2018.
Registration on Sunday 17 afternoon, beginning of the summer school on Monday 18 morning, end of the summer school on Friday 22 afternoon (around 5 pm). We recommend to stay the week-end to visit the beautiful town of Lyon.
Location:The school will be held on the beautiful site of Fourvière Hill in Lyon, close to the Basilique de Fourvière and Roman Theater: Centre Jean Bosco, 14 rue Roger Radisson, 69005 Lyon, France
