COMAT Reseach Group

COMAT is a Research Group at the Department of Chemistry and Industrial Chemistry of the University of Genoa.

Our research focus is to model materials by means of computational techniques, possibly supported by experimental investigations, in order to improve fundamental knowledge and solve application problems.
Thermodynamic modelling according to the CALPHAD approach is applied to complex multi-phase, multi-component materials including alloys, ceramics and more, in order to calculate phase equilibria, thermodynamic properties, phase interactions, etc.

An important part of the research activity is the development of thermodynamic databases for high temperature materials. Among them is GHEA (Genoa High Entropy Alloys), a multi-purpose database conceived for high temperature alloys such as Superalloys and HEAs.
