Anca Roibu's Biography

Anca Roibu, Postdoctoral Fellow, Transilvania University of Brasov

Dr. Anca Roibu studied chemical engineering in Bucharest (Romania). She received a joint master degree in applied spectroscopy from Leipzig University (Germany), Bologna University (Italy), and Lille 1 University (France) and a PhD in Chemical Engineering from KU Leuven (Belgium). Since 2022, she has been a postdoctoral fellow at Transilvania University of Brasov, Romania, working on building an automated screening platform for immobilized photocatalysts. Her research interests lie in designing and characterizing photo microreactors and light sources, flow photocatalysis, and digitalization.

Flow microreactors are promising devices for screening photocatalyst activity due to reaction times in the range of minutes compared to several hours in conventional photoreactors and the ease of connection to inline analytical techniques. A microfluidic platform which consists of parallel microreactors and a rotating multi-wavelength LED light source was developed and its operation was automated. The microreactors were manufactured by 3D printing, the photocatalysts were immobilized as thin films, and the photocatalytic activity was investigated by applying successively various illumination conditions. The microfluidic platform was used for screening the activity of TiO2-based photocatalysts for degrading organic pollutants (e.g. imidacloprid, phenol).
