Head of the Laboratory of Chemical Thermodynamics
Institute of Physical Chemistry “Ilie Murgulescu”
Dr. Speranta Tanasescu is Head of the Laboratory of Chemical Thermodynamics in the Institute of Physical Chemistry “Ilie Murgulescu” of the Romanian Academy, Bucharest. She received his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry - Romanian Academy, 1979 and is the first one in Romania to have developed the solid state electrochemical methods for high temperature thermodynamic studies. She is Senior Researcher I and Ph.D.Supervisor. The main fields of specialization are Physical Chemistry, Chemical Thermodynamics having also more than 40 years’ experience working in the fields of Solid State Electrochemistry; Ceramic Materials with special electrical and magnetic properties; SOFC; Thermochemistry of biological interest compounds. She won the “Gh.Spacu” Award of the Romanian Academy in 1972. Dr. Tanasescu has published more than 100 original papers in ISI and Academic Journals, chapters in books, has presented more than 90 communications to scientific meetings, and holds two national patents. The original thermodynamic data were included in International Thermodynamic Data Bases, in the Gmelin Handbuch der Anorganischen Chemie, in the network of “Center for Rare Earth and Magnetics/Rare-earth Information Center” (CREM/RIC), in “Bibliography on Thermodynamic Properties of Materials at High Temperatures”, “Rare-Earths” Japanese Journal etc., and were cited in scientific papers and PhD Theses. Dr. Tanasescu is Membership of the Associated Phase Diagram and Thermodynamics Committee (APDIC), Member of the European Platform of NANOMEDICINE, Membership of the Romanian Chemical Society as part of the Romanian Academy. She has also experience in evaluation, as well as in the implementation / management of national and international projects.
The thematic field of these projects is oriented on research activities with impact in the following domains: materials science, nanoscience and nanotechnologies, new sources of energies, nanosafety, nanomedicine
