Scaling-up of the aluminium process from ionic liquids

Dra. Elena Guinea Marca from Fundación CIDETEC (SPAIN) participated and presented results from the Scail-UP project as a poster at the Molten Salts and Ionic Liquids XXV (EUCHEM14) meeting at Tallinn, Estonia, on July the 6-11th, 2014. The study of electroplating aluminum from two different eutectics formulations on a polymeric substrate (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene or ABS) were presented. In this work, the most suitable substrate’s specifications were defined and the influence of electrodeposition parameters (current density, temperature) on the structure of the electrodeposited aluminium were analyzed.

EUCHEM2014 was the 5th Conference on Molten Salts and Ionic Liquids, and the 25th conference in the original series of EUCHEM molten salts meetings. The EUCHEM 2014 Conference on Molten Salts and Ionic Liquids was provided a forum to discuss the state-of-the-art in molten salt and ionic liquid research. It had 56 oral presentations and 190 posters. This event allowed CIDETEC to established new contacts with several European Universities and several companies very interested in the process.
