Functional Nanoceramics Group
In our research group we deal with the synthesis of functional ceramics with tunable surface chemistry and porosity for catalysis and energy conversion applications, and study their structure-property relationships (e.g. ionic transport) using methods ad large-scale facilities.
Find here the latest news from our work!
- Our new paper on bimetallic Fe-Ni heterostructures for CO2 conversion applications is out in ACS Nano
- Congratulations to Luisa Wartner for successfully defending her Bachelor Thesis, good job!
- The Erasmus period of Pietro Mariani is unfortunately over: It was nice having you here these months!
- Jens is also joining our group this month for working on his Bachelor's thesis.
- Our group became larger this month: a warm welcome to our new PhD student Princess and our Bachelor's student Nilüfer.
- A big welcome on board to Luisa and Pietro, which will do their Bachelor's and Master's thesis with us!
- We are hiring! A PhD position funded by the DFG is available to work on the development of regenerative catalysts for CO2 reduction applications. Contact us for more information!
- With the University of Leipzig we investigated the solid–liquid phase equilibria of confined water in model cage-like pores using NMR technique. The study is reported on the Journal of Physical Chemistry C.
- It was great to welcome Laura Tripaldi from the University of Milano-Bicocca for a two-months research stay in our group!
Together we just published a new work on Soft Matter about nanoparticle self-assembly.
- A new instrument just arrived in our lab: looking forward to investigate catalyst materials with our new DRIFT spectroscope!
- Check out our new paper on the relationship between oxygen release and catalytic activity of nanoporous perovksite oxides!
- New paper! Direct observation of the adsorbate evolution in mesopores combining anomalous SAXS, XANES during gas physisorption.
- New paper! TiO2 hybrid nanocomposites as promising oxygen scavenging packaging materials.
- Simone has been appointed Topic Editor for the MDPI journal Catalysts.
