The EPS group aims to contribute to a better control of environmental risks and the development towards a tox-free, circular and sustainable society via science based support to the definition, implementation and evaluation of environmental policies at national and EU level and regulatory support for RDI at the interface of science, technologies and policies. 

Responsibilities

What you will be doing

The European Chemicals Regulation, REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals) aims to protect human health and the environment. Article 33 REACH stipulates that suppliers of articles containing substances of very high concern (SVHC) in a concentration above 0.1% (w/w) must provide this information to their customers, as well as information to allow the safe use of the article. It also determines the consumer’s right to request and obtain this information from a supplier (“Right to Know”).


LIST’s Environmental Research and Innovation (ERIN) and IT for Innovative Services (ITIS) departments are partners in the EU LIFE project AskREACH around Article 33 REACH. The project aims to raise consumer and supplier awareness on SVHCs in articles. During the project, a database populated with information on SVHC in articles by article suppliers has been developed. The database is connected to a smartphone application (Scan4Chem), which consumers can use to obtain information on SVHC in articles.

Digital tools are widely used in today’s society and digitalisation has equally taken a growing role in the implementation and monitoring of various policies set by the European regulators. In the context of the AskREACH project, a social media strategy for the awareness raising of the consumer’s “Right to Know” has been elaborated and implemented in all project partner Member States (13 countries). With an online monitoring tool, LIST is monitoring the implementation of the social media strategy European wide. The aim of the monitoring is to find possible correlations between the use of the IT tools elaborated in the AskREACH project and destined for the European stakeholders (consumers and article suppliers) and the awareness raising activities conducted in the framework of the project. As a result, the effectiveness of online campaigning in the context of European policy implementation can better be evaluated and applied also to other policy related projects.


The trainee will review general information on policy dissemination and metrics for monitoring awareness raising activities (scientific publications, reports, tools, etc.) and learn to analyse as a case study the data gathered via the AskREACH IT tools and the online monitoring tool. The trainee will gain experience on reporting on the conducted literature search, monitoring methodology used and the resulted data analysis and on deriving general best practise and recommendations. The results will be summarized in a final report (optionally as Master thesis). The trainee can also contribute to the dissemination of the results.


In addition, the trainee will learn about online media campaigning and its broader effects on the activities of the involved stakeholders in the context of a European policy implementation.

Through its research into advanced materials and processes, the “Materials Research and Technology” (MRT) department, with its 200 researchers and engineers, contributes to the emergence of enabling technologies that underpin the innovation processes of local and international industry. MRT’s activities hinge on four thematic pillars: nanomaterials and nanotechnology, scientific instrumentation and process technology, structural composites, and functional polymers.


The department also includes four high-tech platforms, focusing on composites, prototyping, characterization and testing. These platforms serve both LIST research staff, and other stakeholders in Luxembourg.

Responsibilities

What you will be doing

Advanced packaging for sensitive products requires low permeation to moisture and oxygen in order to allow their long-term conservation. Current solutions either involve metal-coating films, which are not transparent, or inorganic films, which are brittle and do not provide very low permeation properties. Hybrid layers based on mixed polymer and inorganic layers provide an interesting solution for transparent and flexible gas permeation barriers, however their fabrication is still complex and potentially high cost. The goal of the internship is to work on new gas phase deposition methods for depositing advanced hybrid gas permeation barrier coatings.


The student will be in charge of the deposition of hybrid (inorganic and organic) thin films on polymer substrates by atomic layer deposition and chemical vapour deposition, and on their characterisation as gas permeation barrier, He/she will benefit from the material analysis platform in LIST, including secondary ion mass spectroscopy, X-ray photoemission spectroscopy, etc., as well as on gas permeation test measurements developed in LIST. He/she will try to correlate the chemical and physical properties of the obtained films with the gas permeation properties in order to understand the influence of various deposition parameters on the functional properties.

Context :

Polyurethanes (PU) are among the most versatile classes of polymers thanks to their remarkable properties such as good adhesion, flexibility, and durability. Despite these advantages, the use of isocyanates in the manufacturing of conventional PUs is a matter of growing concern because these compounds are harmful to humans and the environment, and people exposed to isocyanates can suffer short and long-term health issues. Among various proposed routes for non-isocyanate polyurethanes (NIPUs), the reaction of cyclic carbonate compounds with amines has recently attracted much attention due to the straightforward mechanism. However, the formation of secondary hydroxyl groups as a result of the ring opening of cyclic carbonate renders these materials highly sensitive to moisture. More work must be done to address such issues to ensure the practical utility of these materials. In this context, the aim of this internship is to synthesize NIPUs from bio-based cyclic carbonates via different synthetic methods and to develop novel methods for their modification.


Mission :

The trainee's work will consist of the following steps:

  • Synthesis of bio-based cyclic carbonates
  • Purification of diamines (distillation, sublimation, crystallization) 
  • Optimization of solution polycondensation reaction for the preparation of NIP Us using various diamines
  • Investigation of reactive extrusion for melt synthesis of NIPUs

What you will be doing

Nanomaterials are quite present in our daily life, they are found in food, cosmetics, textiles, paints, electronic devices, etc. Metallic and metal-oxide particles are the most abundant group containing for example silver, titanium, zinc or gold. Their metrological properties and their respective wanted and unwanted effects in relation to ingestion have to be studied to asses any risks to human and environmental health. 


Therefore, it is very important to develop instruments and methodologies for adequate physico-chemical characterisation of nanomaterials. This is done by the AINA group. We develop new tools for chemical imaging at high lateral resolution meaning that single nanoparticles can be adressed. The intern will have the possibility to be part of this project and investigate nanoparticles concerning their shape, chemical composition and fate after incorporation using dedicated model systems and high resolution secondary ion mass spectrometry imaging. This internship is related to the npSCOPE project, further information can be found here: www.npSCOPE.eu.
