  • Data processing using models that are based on both activity coefficients and equations of state
  • Prediction of phase behavior by using group contribution methods
  • Mass transport in polymeric membranes, pairing effect of permeants
  • Membrane separation of CH4and CO2 mixtures
  • Gas separation by membranes based on ionic liquids
  • Gas transport in asymmetric porous membranes
  • Pervaporation - dehydration of alcohols, separation of azeotropic mixtures
  • Separation of volatile organic compounds from the air
  • Pertraction – separation of enantiomers
  • Modelling of transport properties such as permeability, activation energy of permeation and selectivity of the entire separation process

Applied Research:

  • Separation of unwanted components from raw biogas
  • Separation of organic compounds from the air
  • Separation of racemic mixtures
