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.
