Laboratory of Design and characterisation of catalytic materials

The basic research topics of the laboratory are synthesis, characterisation by physical methods of analysis, and quantum-chemical and theoretical studies of catalytic materials. Catalysts has been successfully synthesised by the methods of co-precipitation, sol-gel, Mechanochemistry, thermal, etc. The laboratory has equipment for materials characterisation by the methods of Mössbauer spectroscopy, X-Ray photoelectron spectroscopy, Auger electron spectroscopy, Electron paramagnetic resonance and X-Ray diffraction. The theoretical research is aimed at studying the atomic level processes on the surface of solids by the methods of theoretical and computational chemistry. An area of special interest is the systematic analysis of the processes in heterogeneous catalysis by DFT methods, etc.

The laboratory accomplishes scientific research aimed at establishing relations between methods of preparation, electronic, crystal, and magnetic structure, and catalytic performance of the materials.
