Research areas description
The goals of the Centre are to develop models that describe the thermochemical properties of various types of solutions; techniques for estimating phase diagrams and predicting multicomponent phase equilibria; and methods for calculating complex chemical equilibria. These activities find application in a wide variety of fields, such as : metallurgy, ceramics, geochemistry, petrochemistry, organic chemistry, electrochemistry, corrosion and energy. The Centre also maintains and operates the F*A*C*T (Facility for the Analysis of Chemical Thermodynamics) computing system, an integrated thermochemical database with a suite of programs.
