PhD student in Physical Chemistry

Closing date: 5 November 2017.

Project title: Synthesis and characterization of novel nanoscale complex metallic alloys

Through novel synthesis techniques, entirely new nanomaterials with structures and properties unachievable in bulk can be obtained. Key to driving this field forward is the ability to derive scientific understanding from nanoscale features in these materials, relating them to their macroscopic behavior, which, ultimately, will allow for improved materials synthesis and design.

Vacancies

PhD student in Materials Chemistry

Closing date: 5 November 2017.

Project title: Studies of biocarbon and zeolite based adsorbents for applications in water purification and biogas upgrading.

Biocarbons will be derived by hydrothermal carbonization of biomolecules and used as precursors for the activated carbons. The zeolites will be synthesized hydrothermally. The adsorbents will be characterized and tested with respect to applications using state-of-the art equipment available at MMK.

Vacancies

PhD student in Inorganic Chemistry

Closing date: 5 November 2017.

Project title: Metallodrug inspired metal-organic frameworks.

Coordination polymers (CPs) and metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are emerging classes of nanoporous inorganic-organic hybrid materials with potential environmental, medical, energy and chemical applications. Synthesis and crystal structure determination of nontoxic multifunctional CPs and MOFs will be a focus in this project.

Bismuth structure

Structure of bismuth subgallate solved

The crystal structure of bismuth subgallate was finally revealed as a porous coordination polymer. The compound has been used in medicines for over one hundred years for its therapeutic properties as an antimicrobial, hemostatic agent, astringent and deodorizing properties to treat wounds and gastrointestinal disorders.

Extended DREAM: Multiple-length scale approach to functional nanomaterials

A team led by German Salazar-Alvarez, researcher at the Department of Materials and Environmental Chemistry, has been awarded 10 MSEK by the Swedish Research Council, VR, to develop sample environments that will allow the in-situ and in-operando multiscale characterization of novel functional nanomaterials such as biomaterials, battery components, and magnetic nanoparticles.

self-assembly of nanoparticles

Understanding how the self-assembly of nanoparticles proceeds

The discovery that the assembly of synthetic nanocrystals proceeds through a two-step process where nanoparticles first agglomerate into an intermediate disordered state that then rapidly transforms into large ordered arrays is similar to what has been recently observed for many synthetic crystal and biominerals.
