In our research, we are developing new organic and inorganic materials with interesting properties that may find applications in electronics, photonics, catalysis, and other applications. We make the materials, characterize them, and study their properties, often in collaborations. We develop diverse materials - solid-state structures, polymers, gels, glasses, and others - to address interesting scientific and engineering problems. Some of our projects are aimed at combating environmental problems or improving alternative energy applications, such as solar energy conversion and hydrogen fuel cells

Students make new molecules and materials, and study them by a large variety of techniques – electron microscopy, thermal analysis, NMR spectroscopy, IR / Raman spectroscopy, UV-vis / fluorescence spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, light scattering, X-ray crystallography, gas adsorption, calorimetry, polarizing optical microscopy, circular dichroism spectroscopy, electrochemistry, etc.

Below are examples of projects in progress or recently completed:

1. Mesoporous materials. We are creating new mesoporous materials for applications in optics, supercapacitor electrodes, and catalysis.
