COST Action CA18112 MechSustInd
Training School 2022


Mechanochemical synthesis and kinetics

 

Date: June 13th to June 16th, 2022
Local host: Francesco Delogu, Università degli Studi di Cagliari
Location: Cagliari, Italy

 


About the school

 

This course will enable participants to gain basic training in carrying out solid state reactions in general using normal laboratory ball mills. The main aims of the school are:
1. To familiarize less experimented users to mechanochemical processes, using diverse milling equipment.
2. Learn on how to make use of standardized mechanochemical reaction conditions.
3. To get familiar with kinetics of mechanochemical reactions.
The presented knowledge should increase the use of mechanochemistry for APIs synthesis and its applications in catalysis. The TS is organized in the week immediately following the INCOME2022 conference, co-organized by the Action.
The school is organized in a hybrid format — the theoretical lessons will be also accessible online for anyone. The experimental sessions are available only for the physically present par-ticipants. Travel grants for trainees are available.
The school capacity for the experimental part is 10 trainees.

 


About MechSustInd

 

COST action CA18112 Mechanochemistry for Sustainable Industry (MechSustInd) aims at com-munity building of mechanochemists across Europe. Education of young researchers, training of specialised scientists, engineers and technologists, promoting excellence and cross-fertilization among different fields is one of the important objectives of the Action.

 


Practical details

 

The training school starts on Monday, June 13th 2022 and finishes on Thursday, June 16th 2022.
