Project description

Our aim is to set up a national expert group for the development of intelligent materials based on soft chemical production technology over a period of five to ten years. Soft chemistry avoids the use of excessive heat or other energy input to produce chemicals, by optimising the chemical structure and reactivity of the reagents and by promoting water as the preferred medium of reaction. Deliverables cover the Research and Development of extremely efficient energy storage systems, of ecologically acceptable new chemistries for the industrial production of intelligent materials, the hosting of international conferences, consulting actions and the evlauation of creation of new spin-offs. In addition CHEMAT will closely monitor worldwide developments in this field and dfraft a roadmap for our industries.
