At the Laboratory of Physical Chemistry (SPC) polymeric and/or colloidal liquids and (modified) advanced surfaces are being studied by combining experiment and theory. The focus is on the phase behaviour and dynamics of colloid-polymer mixtures, modification and functionalization of surfaces, and self-assembly of complex systems. This is supported by strengthening physical chemistry education at TU/e.

SPC is a new group at the Department of Chemical Engineering & Chemistry at TU/e. Physical chemistry aims at gaining understanding of the physical properties of matter and of (chemical) processes by combining experiment and theory.

Within the broad field of physical chemistry, SPC concentrates on studying liquids and surfaces.
