Our PhD student Bartlomiej Gaida held a two-month internship at QUILL (Queen’s University Ionic Liquid Laboratories) in Belfast. He was investigating physiochemical properties of novel carbohydrate-based eutectic mixtures in collaboration with prof. Malgorzata Swadzba-Kwasny group. The internship has been possible by the Synergy Project founded by National Agency for Academic Exchange. QUILL is the oldest and most established center dedicated to studying ionic liquids, their applications and related technologies development. We are very pleased that international cooperation brought us new possibilities and knowledge in the field of materials characterization. Thank you for a wonderful experience, great atmosphere and we are looking forward further fruitful cooperation!
