Thermodynamics and Molecular Modelling

In the development of processes and products starting with macroscopic experimental observations, models that are able to describe the behavior of substances and mixtures, in several degrees of complexity and in several phases, are suitable. With the increasing need of the use renewable raw materials, new scientific and technological challenges are emerging. Some of the applications involve the study of protein solutions, the behavior of phases in complex biopolymers and fatty systems and in the formation and dissociation of gas hydrates.
