Chemical analysis and structural characterization methods for sustainable materials

Massspectrometer

Research at MMK focuses on the development of Green Chemistry synthesis routes and sustainable processing methods with reduced impact on humans and environment.
The synthesis and processing of materials utilises primarily benign resources such as bio-based, renewable and non-critical, often Earth-abundant materials. This also involves use and valorisation of waste-streams and preventing the formation of harmful side-products.
 

Advanced analytical techniques for materials, environment and health

Analytical chemistry research at MMK comprises development of analytical methods and techniques for qualitative and quantitative determination of organic compounds and biomolecules relevant to human health and the environment, as well as characterization of materials. 

Electron crystallography and analytical TEM

We develop new methods for studying composition and atomic arrangements in solids using state-of-the-art transmission electron microscopes. The techniques include continuous rotation electron diffraction (cRED), scanning electron diffraction, high-resolution (scanning) transmission electron microscopy (S)TEM, electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS).

Solid state NMR and optical spectroscopy

Solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is a key tool for the characterisation of the structure and dynamics of a broad range of systems in materials science, chemistry, and biology.  

Multi-scale/Computational modelling

We develop multiscale modeling methods ranging from fully atomistic ab-initio simulations to modeling of mesoscale structures formed by biological macromolecules and nanoparticles.
