About the Project
Our recent work has shown solution behaviour to be governed by key elements and functional groups that promote molecule-molecule interactions and form nanoaggregates. Preventing nanoaggregate formation is desirable to limit accumulation of deposits that severely interfere with the performance of the fluid. In the current project we will combine modelling and experiments to determine aggregation mechanisms when the chemical architecture of the interacting species is systematically transformed. This big-data approach will be executed using in-house built grid-based molecular modelling and compound structures obtained from crystallographic databases and high-fidelity experiments using FT-ICR-MS, XPS, NMR, SANS. The modelling approach will provide new insights to design chemical dispersants that prevent nanoaggregate formation, something which is not yet realized.
