X-ray scattering in food and non-food applications

22-09-2022 from 09:00 to 13:00
Faculty of Biosience Engineering, building B, room B0.3
Daylan Tzompa-Sosa

This symposium provides the opportunity to learn about the application of X-ray scattering to study shape, porosity, alignment, crystal polymorphisms, and general structure of different materials (organic polymers, plastic films, lipid particles...).

PhD students and postdoctoral researchers with hands-on experience will be talking about their most recent findings. X-ray scattering is a technique available at the Faculty of Bioscience engineering and is available for every researcher at UGent.


9-12:00 h Presentations

  • Ivana Penagos, PhD student at FSF. Promotor- Prof. Koen Dewettinck and Prof. Filip van Bockstaele
    • How can x-ray scattering help us understand fat-rich food products?
  • Fien de Witte, PhD student at FSF. Promotor- Prof. Koen Dewettinck
    • X-ray scattering to study suspensions.
  • Mark Gontsarik, Posdoctoral researcher at in the Biopharmaceutical Technology Unit group.
    • pH-Switchable Lipid Nanocarriers for Targeted Delivery of Antimicrobial Peptides
  • Marek Beliš, PhD student at XStruct Bio-Inorganic chemistry. Promotor-
    • Nucleation and particle growth of organic polymers and metal-organic frameworks
  • Amir Bashirgonbadi, PhD student at Laboratory of chemical Technology (LCT). Promotor- Prof. Kevin van Geem
    • Crystalline morphology in plastic films.


12:00- 13:00 Lunch and networking time.

A visit to the X-ray facility is possible upon request to the organizers (daylan.tzompa@ugent.be).
