Prof Sergei Kazarian

Professor of Physical Chemistry, Imperial College London. Within UNIHEAT, Prof. Sergei G. Kazarian is the leader for sub-project 2 “Oil and deposit chemical characterization via advanced Imaging”. His main research interests are molecular spectroscopy of polymeric materials and supercritical fluids processing, the preparation of polymer/drug formulations, supercritical fluids enhanced processing, rheology, separations using supercritical fluids and ionic liquids. In most recent years his research has focused on the development and applications of advanced spectroscopic imaging methods. These include FTIR spectroscopic imaging (specifically attenuated total reflection (ATR) imaging in both macro and micro modes), confocal Raman microscopy and tip-enhanced Raman scattering. FTIR spectroscopic imaging brings to light a whole new range of possibilities in complex materials, forensics, pharmaceutical and biomedical research.
