Understanding the electrodeposition behaviour of gallium

SIM² KU Leuven – SOLVOMET/SURF researchers unraveled the electrodeposition behaviour of gallium in a non-aqueous electrolyte, comprising of gallium(III) chloride and 1,2-dimethoxyethane (DME). The authors were given the opportunity to design the front cover of the...

Closed-loop process for Co & REE recovery from NdFeB magnets

SIM² KU Leuven – SOLVOMET researchers developed a new closed-loop metal recovery process for NdFeB-based permanent magnets. Using an oxidative ionic liquid, which can be reused in next cycles, the process allows to recover both the rare-earth metals and cobalt from...
