Congratulations to dr. Eva Plessers for successfully defending her PhD thesis 'Heterogeneously catalyzed chemoselective reduction of unsaturated nitro and carbonyl compounds' in the Aula van de Tweede Hoofdwet.
An article about the catalytic activity of ZIF-8 metal-organic framework is published in the CrystEngComm. Fluorescence microscopy uncovers surface-only catalytic activity of ZIF-8, but accessibility is improved via extra porosity introduction by oleic acid treatment.
Congratulations to dr. Alexandros Kimon Leonidakis for successfully defending his PhD thesis 'Quantification of mass transport and structural properties of hydrogel carriers in tissue engineering' in the Auditorium ELEC B91.300, Electrotechnical Institute.
Ivo Stassen successfully defended his PhD thesis “Synthesis of immobilized metal-organic frameworks for integrated applications” in the aula Arenbergkasteel, 01.07 (Kasteelpark Arenberg 1, 3001 Heverlee)
