Biography

Ciprian G. Pruteanu is a Research Fellow in the Department of Earth Sciences at University College London.

Research Themes
Research Summary

My current expertise is in high pressure techniques (including micro-manipulation and loading of liquid-gas mixtures, Diamond Anvil Cell apparatus and Paris-Edinburgh large volume presses), crystallography and structural analysis, X-ray and neutron diffraction techniques, computational modeling, scientific programming and light molecular systems and water at high pressure.

I have developed a technique that allows for loading of controlled concentrations of aqueous fluid mixtures in Diamond Anvil Cells as well as a quantitative imaging method that when coupled with Raman spectroscopy provides full information on the state of such a mixture under given conditions (concentration, pressure and temperature). 

Apart from these, I am also interested in classical and ab initio molecular dynamics studies aiming to predict or at least reproduce experimentally observed changes in solubility.

My current research interests comprise:

- binary fluid mixtures, with a particular interest in those having one H-bonded component and one hydrophobic component 
- pressure dependence of hydrogen-bonding 
- role of H-bond network topology on hydrophobic interactions
- effect of pressure on solubility and miscibility
