Research: Functional Porous Solids – Morphology, Transport, Performance

  • High-performance computing of flow, electrokinetics, electrochemistry, and (electro)hydrodynamics in functional devices
  • Three-dimensional physical reconstruction and morphological analysis of porous materials, e.g., by electron tomography (mesopore scale) or confocal laser scanning microscopy (macropore scale)
  • Modeling diffusion, sorption, and reaction in mesoporous solids for separation and catalysis using the obtained three-dimensional reconstructions as underlying geometrical models
  • Molecular dynamics (MD) simulations in computer-generated nanopores to unravel how chemical surface functionalization affects interfacial liquid-phase organization and mobility as well as solute transport
  • Continuous-flow microreactors for high-performance flow chemistry, addressing particularly reaction kinetics and mechanisms
  • Analytical separation science and technology (on-line coupled reaction-separation-detection for qualitative and quantitative analysis)
  • Tailored hierarchically porous, high-surface-area silica monoliths for separation and catalysis
  • Electrokinetic micro- and nanofluidics

Biographical Sketch and Research Philosophy

Professor Tallarek studied chemistry at the Eberhard-Karls-Universität Tübingen and obtained his Dr. rer. nat. in 1998 with an NMR imaging study of the fluid dynamics in porous media. As a Marie-Curie postdoctoral fellow from 1998 to 2000 in Wageningen (The Netherlands) he developed and applied NMR tools for the in situ characterization of transport in microfluidic devices, particularly electrokinetic microfluidics. From 2000 to 2007 he was on the faculty of the Department of Chemical and Process Engineering of the Otto-von-Guericke-Universität Magdeburg, where he completed his habilitation in 2004 (mentor: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Dr. h.c. mult. A. Seidel-Morgenstern) and received a venia legendi for physical chemistry. Since 2007 he is professor of analytical chemistry and a member of the board of directors of the materials science center at the Philipps-Universität Marburg.

His research focuses on the discovery and understanding of the fundamental morphology–functionality–transport relationships in functional porous materials, from solute–surface interactions to macroscale transport. This approach relies on modern simulation methods to capture the involved widely different spatiotemporal scales (e.g., molecular dynamics at and near solid-liquid interfaces, large-scale simulation of flow) and the precise physical reconstruction of porous media. A variety of experimental analysis methods are used to complement the modeled data.

More specifically, Professor Tallarek’s activities cover analytical and physicochemical research on experimental, theoretical, and numerical aspects of transport and reactions in porous media, with emphasis on separation science, heterogeneous catalysis, and energy-related applications. The investigated materials are patterned channels and membranes used as functional units in microfluidic devices (analyte preconcentration, seawater desalination, chip electrospray), as well as particulate and monolithic supports employed as separation columns, flow-through microreactors, or battery electrodes. His research investigates closely related topics and coupled transports with increasing complexity to achieve a thorough understanding of functionality, performance, and process integration. This comprises the reconstruction of monolithic and particulate bed morphologies over a hierarchy of length scales (from macropores to mesopores) and the characterization of the involved surfaces and interfaces, (electro)chemical reactions, fluid flow fields, and (electro)hydrodynamics. Experimental characterization methods are combined with direct imaging techniques and advanced numerical simulation approaches for the identification and analysis of key transport and reaction phenomena. Gained knowledge on how microscopic structural details and mesoscopic interrelations affect molecular transport allows to better analyze, understand, and optimize processes traditionally observed on a macroscopic scale.
