Research Overview

Reactivity of Solids

  • Mechanistic studies with dynamic in-situ methods
  • Thermochemical and thermodynamic characterization of solids
  • Synthesis of solids with defined morphological properties
  • Solvent-free syntheses

Application of Synchroton Radiation Methods

  • High-resolution diffraction
  • X-ray absorption spectroscopy
  • Small-angle scattering, simultaneous techniques

Development and Application of Biomaterials

  • Microstructured polymers
