Welcome to the Ameloot Group Website!

 

We are a materials chemistry group that thrives on crossing traditional subject boundaries.

As part of the KU Leuven ​Centre for Membrane Separations, Adsorption, Catalysis, and Spectroscopy and the Department of Microbial and Molecular Systems, we study different flavors of porous matter. Our research is focused on enabling applications based on these materials through a fundamental understanding of their formation processes and properties. In doing so, we aim to build bridges between the established use of porous materials, as adsorbents and catalysts, and the worlds of microelectronics, diagnostics, and additive manufacturing.

The Ameloot Group is one of the founding members of the Leuven Institute for Micro- and Nanoscale Integration (LIMNI). The focus points of LIMNI are (nano)material characterization, bio-nanosystems, nanoelectronics, and physical micro- and nanosystems.

Our labs are located in the state-of-the-art Leuven Chem&Tech and NanoCenter facilities, completed in 2015. Have a look at our campus via the KU Leuven virtual tour.
