Dr. Anastasios Labropoulos is a graduate of the Chemistry Department of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, holds a MSc in Polymer Science and Applications (Department of Chemistry, University of Athens) and a Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry (Department of Chemistry, University of Athens). The elaboration of his Master's and Ph.D. Thesis was accomplished at the Laboratory of Membranes and Microporous Materials for Environmental Separations (MESL) of the Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (INN) at the National Centre for Scientific Research "Demokritos". His research activities include the separation, capture and storage of gases for energy and environmental applications, chemical vapor deposition (CVD) on porous ceramic substrates, characterization of porous materials, investigation of adsorption and diffusion of gases into porous and nanostructured media, development of composite membranes incorporating carbon nanotubes or ionic liquids, assessment of membranes efficiency in gas separations, and development and study of catalytic membrane reactors with the aim to improve the performance chemical processes. He has 17 publications in peer-reviewed international scientific journals and 22 presentations and lectures in Greek and international scientific conferences. He has also worked in 9 Greek and European research projects as an External Scientific Associate or with a scholarship.
