Materials Analysis and Functional Solids

Inorganic chemistry

  • Synthesis and characterization of new solid-state and complex compounds
  • Oxoacids and salts, especially carbonates and hydrogen carbonates
  • Oxygen-rich compounds (e.g. peroxides, peroxocarbonates, peroxophosphates)
  • Hydrogen bond systems
  • Structural chemistry of ionic liquids
  • Complex compounds of d-group metals
  • Oxides, nitrides, phosphides, thiophosphates
  • Materials with semiconducting, superconducting and nonlinear optical properties
  • Phase analysis of multicomponent systems
  • binary and ternary intermetallic compounds
  • ab-initio calculations
  • structure-property and bond length-bond valence relationships
