Bern-Fribourg Master in Earth Sciences


Details of Master Thesis Topic (Module D):
Structural investigation of layered- and framework-structures phosphates

Master Thesis title: Structural investigation of layered- and framework-structures phosphates
Description:Microporous minerals and synthetic phases with open framework structures are highly versatile and are successful applied in several disciplinary area. Among these materials, layered- and framework-phosphates have received great attention for their application as molecular sieves, sorbents and host matrices. In this project, the crystal chemistry of natural and synthetic phosphates will be investigated by coupling an experimental and theoretical approach. The student will learn how to independently run diffraction experiments and perform molecular dynamics of the system under investigation.
