Postdoc position: Low-salinity water flooding on a microfluidic chip - Netherlands

(Chemical) Industrial Partnership Programme ‘Rock-on-a-Chip: Salt-controlled wettability alteration in oil-water-solid systems for applications in enhanced oil recovery’

The recovery of crude oil from geological reservoirs is a complex multiscale process that involves the displacement of oil from microscopic pores in a porous rock matrix by water that is injected into the ground in large quantities. To a large extent, the efficiency of this process is controlled by the relative…

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
