The research in the NIE lab is revolved around Soft Matter-, Colloid- and Interface Science. We use techniques such as nanoparticle self-assembly, polymer synthesis or liquid-liquid phase separation to fabricate nano- or microcapsules, separation membranes and catalytic microreactors. We then test the performance of these materials for applications like drug delivery, anti-corrosive coatings, water treatment, gas separation, green chemistry, biofuel synthesis and liquid-liquid extraction.
