logo LSP


The LSP logo represents a basal plane of a MgCl2 structural layer with a relief of adsorbed atoms reproducing its acronym. We drew inspiration from Scanning Tunneling and Atomic Force Microscopy images of inorganic lattices at atomic resolution. Apart from ‘artistic’ reasons, we chose the subject among others possible to emphasize the importance of MgCl2-supported Ziegler-Natta catalysts: relatively old, but still winning on the market and – we believe – further improvable; in fact, they represent a major focus area in our research programs. Admittedly, we are not yet able to achieve a full control of the surface structures in these systems, but our logo is not merely wishful thinking: we will get there soon!
