StoRIES Infrastructures: NiC research infrastructure

National Insitute of Chemistry (NIC) research infrastructure in Ljubljana combines infrastructure of 2 Departments at National Institute of Chemistry.

State of the art: in-situ/operando approach for determination of structure, PDF analysis (inhomogeneous distribution of active sites/defects, distribution of the bonding distances of the studied atoms with adjacent atoms), electrochemical cell for in-situ batteries testing, high pressure reaction cells, gravimetric high-resolution isotherms and kinetic adsorption profiles, UV-Vis in-situ/operando characterization up to 900oC, developing new methods.

Services currently offered by the infrastructure: structural and chemical characterizations of materials for thermochemical and electrochemical ES, in situ and ex situ examination of materials` thermal, hydrothermal, structural stability and storage performance.
