Solid State Chemistry Faculty
Our group prepares and studies rare examples of materials and complexes of the heaviest elements for which macroscopic properties can be obtained from nuclear reactors.
Our research focus lies in both the synthesis and characterization of new materials exhibiting novel or improved properties, using experimental as well as theoretical techniques.
The Hu research group focuses on the design, synthesis, and characterization of functional energy materials and advancement of solid-state NMR/MRI techniques.
The Latturner group explores metal flux synthesis of inorganic semiconductors and intermetallics of interest for their magnetic and electronic properties.
Our research focuses the development of new functional materials for applications in a wide range of technological areas from energy to environmental and information technologies.
Solid-state NMR of the periodic table, diffraction methods, and quantum chemical computations to study numerous materials, like pharmaceuticals, nanoparticles, porous solids, and catalysts.
We study relationships between crystal and electronic structures and properties of materials, in order to design and synthesize better magnets, catalysts, and stimuli-responsive molecular materials.
We explore chemical self-organization at the mesoscale, materials synthesis far from the thermodynamic equilibrium, hierarchically ordered matter, and prebiotic chemistry.
We are principally interested in exploring the interface between traditional inorganic chemistry and materials science. To this end, techniques for studying the reactivity, structure, and bonding of inorganic complexes.
