Research

Both fundamental and applied research is carried out at the department. We develop new methods for studying structure and bonding in small and bio-molecules, liquids and solids. The methods include diffraction, electron microscopy, modelling, NMR and other spectroscopic methods. We study the physical and chemical properties of compounds and link them with the structures and reactivity, in order to assess their potential usefulness and impact on the environment. We use various synthesis and processing methods to develop new materials for applications, including implants, catalysis, CO2 separation, controlled release and renewable energy production.

Research news

  • DSC – Netzsch DSC 214 Polyma 2019-09-05 The 214 Polyma is a heat-flow DSC with a technical resolution of 0.1 µW and temperature range -170°C to 600°C. It can be operated in inert and oxidizing gas atmospheres. Heating and cooling rates range between 0.001 to 500 /min (strongly dependent on end temperatures). Cooling options are a IC70 closed-loop intra-cooler (down to -70°C) and a LN2 CC300 cooling system (down to -170°C). Measurements are usually made with 1–10 mg samples in pierced or closed cold-weldable 40 µl Concavus Al crucibles.
