KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm is Sweden’s largest technical institution which is top 100 institute worldwide as ranked by QS. Functional Materials division in KTH was established two decades back gaining expertise in the preparation and application of large variety of nanoparticulate systems.
KTH is leading WP2 and is also responsible for the development of innovative green nanocoating for the mineralization of polymers found in invisible litter (microplastics). KTH is collaborating closely with Lebanon University and PP Polymer AB for the production of prototypes that will be implemented and tested under WP3 (TRL5).
Advanced synthesis facility as well as various characterization equipment’s in the division includes, HRTEM, Scanning Electron Microscope, FIB-SEM, X-ray Diffractometer, ICP, Particle sizer- DLS/Zeta potential, FTIR, TGA and DSC, UV-Vis- NIR Spectrometer, Fluorescence Spectrometer-PL, Plasma Cleaner, Freeze Dryer etc.
