Looking for Lead Partner


We, a scientific group from the Institute of Chemistry of the Academy of Sciences of Moldova (please, note that our country, the Republic of Moldova is an associate country in H2020), are interested to participe as a partner in a common Consortium within the following H2020 calls:

1. CE-SC5-06-2018 - RIA
Raw materials: New technologies for the enhanced recovery of by-products

;CE-SC5-01-2018 - RIA

Connecting economic and environmental gains - the circular economy: Methods to remove hazardous substances and contaminants from secondary raw materials (jointly with an Italian group)

;SC5-09-2019 (c) - RIA

Raw materials: New solutions for sustainable production of raw materials (c) Recovery of metals and minerals from sea resources (jointly with a French group)

;CE-SC5-01-2018 - RIA
Connecting economic and environmental gains - the circular economy: Methods to remove hazardous substances and contaminants from secondary raw materials (jointly with an Italian group)

We have also a large experience in participating in different international projects, inclusive FP7 and H2020.

Our possible contribution: 

1. Improving the representation of long-term carbon-cycle processes in computational and thermodynamic models will help us to quantify and evaluate the millennial-scale climate legacy that we may bequeath to future generations. The extent to which ecosystems are capable of buffering chemical changes as a response towards external perturbations will be quantified by using buffer theory approach and theoretical expressions of the formal chemical thermodynamics for heterogeneous aqueous systems, recently developed by our group. Within this call, the general expressions describing the sensitivity of equilibrium concentrations of ecosystem’s soluble and insoluble chemical species to changes in their chemistry will be deduced. We are able to apply our deduced general expressions to possible changes over the next few decades and beyond this century. The developed buffer theory approach for heterogeneous aqueous systems will allow also to predict the future chemical complex processes, their behavior and resistance to exterior (anthropogenic) perturbations, such as pollutants (the chemical composition variation), temperature, pressure ;

2. Heavy metals content, even in trace amount in different type of samples (vegetation, biological, geological, foodstuff, etc.) will be determined using high sensitive analytical technique - neutron activation analysis using the methodology, developed and tested in the Joint Institute of Nuclear Research (JINR) (Moldova is a part of this intergovernmental institution). Neutron activation analysis is an analytical technique for qualitative and quantitative determination of elements based on the measurement of characteristic radiation from radionuclides formed directly or indirectly by neutron irradiation of the material. NAA advantages include high sensitivity, good selectivity, good accuracy, independence of matrix effects, nondestructive nature; possibility of simultaneously determining a large number of elements; independence of the results on the form of chemical compounds, easy procedure for samples preparation. Since NAA requires access to a nuclear reactor, the method is less widely applied than other analytical techniques for elemental analysis. Samples are irradiated at the fast pulsed reactor IBR-2 in the Frank Laboratory of Neutron Physics of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, Dubna. Unique three-circuit reactor cooling system allows necessary conditions for samples irradiation without destruction – temperature 60-700С. Determination of metal content in solution ca be done using atomic adsorption spectrometry.
