The 16th Panhellenic Symposium of Catalysis (www.16psc.tuc.gr), which was co-organized by the Technical University of Crete, the School of Chemical & Environmental Engineering of the Technical University of Crete and the Community Enterprise of Culture & Environment of the Municipality of Chania and was held in Chania on October 20-22, 2022, was successfully completed. The aim of the 16th PSC was the presentation of the latest developments in a wide range of Catalysis areas, such as energy, environment, synthesis and application of new materials, as well as sustainable development. The program of the Symposium included the opening speech of the member of the Academy of Athens and Emeritus Professor of the University of Patras, Konstantinos Vagenas. Relevant reports were made in the local press and websites (www.kriti360o, www.haniotika-nea.gr, www.seliniotikanea.gr)
Research study of «Laboratory of Physical Chemistry & Chemical Processes» of School of Chemical & Environmental Engineering of the Technical University of Crete, with results of the Project GREEK-CHINESE BILATERAL RESEARCH AND INNOVATION COOPERATION (CatEfDeNOx, PROJECT: Τ7ΔΚΙ-00356, Project Leader: Professor Ioannis Yentekakis), which was presented on 13th Panhellenic Scientific Conference of Chemical Engineering, with title «CATALYTIC OXIDATION OF CO UNDER O2 EXCESS CONDITIONS ON DISPERSED Ir NANOPARTICLES OVER MIXED OXIDE Al2O3-CexZr1-xO2 SUPPORTS», and 1st author the PhD candidate, C. Drosou, won the award of «Best Poster Presentation» in the thematic section «Catalysis -Basic & Applied Chemistry».
Ioannis Yentekakis, Professor of the School of Chemical & Environmental Engineering, Deputy Dean and Director of the instituted laboratory "Physical Chemistry and Chemical Processes" is, since 2020, Editor-in-Chief of the high impact (IF=5,719) international scientific journal Nanomaterials and specifically of the "Environmental Nanoscience and Nanotechnology" Unit ("Environmental Nanoscience and Nanotechnology"). The journal is open access and covers the publication of innovative research results in a wide interdisciplinary spectrum that have a reference point in nanoscience, nanotechnology and nano-materials that find applications in the protection/restoration of the environment, the production of green energy, the circular economy and the sustainability of environment. He is also Specialty Chief Editor in the scientific field "Catalytic Remediation" of the newly established International Scientific Journal Frontiers in Environmental Chemistry. The journal is open access covering all kinds of topics in environmental chemistry. The Catalytic Remediation section is mainly oriented towards the development and use of catalytic materials and processes in matters of environmental remediation and catalytic control of pollutants in soil, water and air.
The submission of abstracts for the conference, after the extension given, ends on July 31, 2022. For more information, you can visit the official website of the conference www.16psc.tuc.gr
