The title of his thesis was:

“Novel hybrid membranes for post-combustion CO2 capture”

Mr. Gabriel Guerrero Heredia studied the effect, affinity, and compatibility of three different amine functionalized polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane (POSS®) nanoparticles dispersed in a polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) enabling improvements in the membrane fabrication and the resulting separation properties.


The assessment committee consisted of:

Supervisor: Professor Emerita May-Britt Hägg, NTNU.
Co-Supervisor: Dr. Christian R. Simon, SINTEF Oslo.
