Research interests

Flor is using molecular simulation and coarse grained techniques to obtain thermodynamic and transport properties of systems that are relevant for the chemical industry. In particular, she is interested in systems containing surfactants and liquid crystals, as well as fluids in confined systems, like gases and liquids in porous carbons, zeolites or related mesoporous materials.

She is currently working on the following projects:

Surfactant-self assembly and the formation of porous materials (DeSANNS, FP6)

Behaviour of surfactant self-assemblies under shear

Copolymers in alifatic/aromatic mixtures

Modelling Polymers of Intrinsic Microporosity in collaboration with P. Budd, Chemistry (U. Manchester), Coray Colina and Greg Larsen from Materials Science (Penn State)

Characterization of activated carbons
