During her AUFF-Ukraine research fellowship, Alina Korobeinyk will be working on the novel catalytical system development in cooperation with the Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNano).
Noble metal nanoparticles: formation in solution or at the surface of the solid matrix. Catalytic/adsorption effectiveness of metal nanoparticles. Magnetic materials and solid electrolytes. Investigation of direct reactivity of the solid surface (silica, activated carbon, polymeric membranes, etc.). Chemical modification of the solid surface from liquid- or gas-phase. Redox reaction at the surface. Waste (ground) water cleanup. Biowaste transformation. Utilization modified/un-modified of natural and synthetic silicas in adsorption and catalytic processes. Evaluation of mechanical and chemical properties of synthesized materials. Biocompatibility of porous solids and utilization of solid matters in the bioengineering.
Alina Korobeinyk holds a PhD in Material Science form the School of Pharmacy and Biomolecular Research, University of Brighton, United Kingdom. Prior to being appointed to AIAS, Alina Korobeinyk, as a part of a consortium, was awarded the ORAU grant to pursue a large environmental project on the demercuration of the artificial lake-reservoir Bulkyldak (Pavlodar area, North Kazakhstan). She also performed a significant number of research projects on catalytical decontamination of aquatics from organic pollutants, primary focusing on catalytic particle formation, characterization and the performance. The project she is working on at AIAS is a continuance of her research in the field of catalysis and addresses further issues of catalytic particle size/effectiveness ratio.
