    Summer School and Workshop in Calorimetry 2017

    Calorimetry and thermal methods in material science

    Lyon, France   -   June 18 - 23, 2017

    There will be two parallel sessions (one in French, one in English), in two different classrooms for French and English speaking people.

    Calorimetry and thermal analysis methods, alone or linked to other techniques, will be described and applied to the characterization of catalysts, oxides, metals, supports, adsorbents, polymers, composites, food, pharmaceuticals, mesoporous solids, ionic liquids, phase change materials, heat storage materials, hydrogen storage materials. Examples will be given in various domains: catalytic reactions, air and wastewater treatment, clean and renewable energies, refining of hydrocarbons, green chemistry, hydrogen production and storage, CO2 capture, interseasonal heat storage, food chemistry, polymers...

    The described techniques will be the following: calorimetry, DSC (differential scanning calorimetry), TGA (thermogravimetric analysis), DTA (differential thermal analysis), TPD (thermoprogrammed desorption), TPR/TPO (thermoprogrammed reduction/oxidation), and coupled techniques as Calorimetry - Volumetry, TG-FTIR, TG-DSC-MS, DSC - Gas Chromatography, Calorimetry - UV / Visible spectroscopy, Calorimetry - HPL Chromatography, Titration and flow calorimetry, ...

    Thematic workshops on case studies will be organized according to the scientific interests of the participants (i.e. CO2 capture, hydrogen storage and production, thermochemical heat storage, polymer decomposition, catalytic active sites characterization, experimental set-up and instruments calibrations, experimental data interpretation...). Participants are invited to submit their wishes in the registration form ("Remarks" item).
    Participants are encouraged to submit a 1 page summary of their work to be considered for oral/poster presentation during the workshop. Experts in the various domains of thermal analysis will be available for discussions.


    June 18 - 23, 2017.

    Registration on Sunday 18 afternoon, beginning of the summer school on Monday 19 morning, end of the summer school on Friday 23 afternoon (around 5 pm).


    The school will be held on the beautiful site of Fourvière Hill in Lyon, close to the Basilique de Fourvière and Roman Theater: Centre Jean Bosco, 14 rue Roger Radisson, 69005 Lyon, France
