Welcome to STREAMS group!
The research group “Surface Transport and Reactive Events Affecting Membrane Separation” (STREAMS) was established at Bielefeld University in the framework of a Liebig Fellowship awarded to Dr. Petr Dementyev by the Chemical Industry Fund (FCI). From air separation to seawater desalination, membrane technologies are of paramount importance for numerous practical applications while membranes themselves span a wide range of organic, inorganic, and hybrid materials. At STREAMS, we are dedicated to studying physicochemical processes occurring in membranes, including elementary reaction steps and surface diffusion. To this end, we employ two-dimensional materials as model systems which have virtually no internal volume and allow for exploring solely the interfaces. Curious to learn more?
