The research at MMK addresses important challenges in energy, environment and health. We work for a better world and sustainable society.

We focus on developing new materials for a sustainable society, employing green synthesis and sustainable processing routes. We develop advanced methodologies for chemical analysis and structural characterisation, including analytical chemistry tools, electron crystallography, different spectroscopic methods and multiscale  modelling.

The research activities are divided into 10 profile areas, conducted by 26 research groups.


Zirconia teeth

Stockholm Material Hub creating the future of dentistry

The Stockholm Material Hub, a Stockholm Trio collaboration, is working in collaboration with dentists and clinicians to create the next generation of materials for dental implants. The requirements for how an artificial tooth looks, functions and can be manufactured are exceedingly complex, but it seems likely that their zirconia-based materials will be the choice of the future.
