The Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTh) is among the most highly ranked tertiary education institutions in Greece. It is the largest university in Greece and in the Balkans. The School of Chemistry at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki consists of four divisions involved in education and research activities concerning the following areas: i) General & Inorganic Chemistry, ii) Organic Chemistry & Biochemistry, iii) Physical, Analytical & Environmental Chemistry and iv) Chemical Technology & Industrial Chemistry.
The support for the FineFuture project will be provided by the Laboratory of Chemical and Environmental Technology (LCET) which has basic research fields as: unit operations, catalytic processes, separation processes, transport phenomena. LCET has a long-lasting experience in the flotation processes and has supervised and completed several masters or doctoral thesis in this subject.
The Division of Chemical Technology & Industrial Chemistry and the School of Chemistry are equipped with all the appropriate devices to conduct laboratory experiments relating to flotation as AAS, UV-Vis, FT-IR, HP Chromatography, Ion Chromatography, AFM, NMR, potentiostat galvanostat, bulk and interfacial rheometers, static and dynamic interfacial tensiometers, static and dynamic wetting and spreading instrumentation fully programmable in terms of force and time profiling, optical and electrical tomographic equipment, high-speed optical and microscopy recording devices.
