Research in Materials Chemistry seeks to understand the relationship between composition, structure and property lies in a broad spectrum of materials, in order to proceed to the rational design of new materials with controllable functionality. Our research, which combines aspects of inorganic, organic and physical chemistry, encompasses materials for energy, high-performance polymers, porous solids, catalysts and magnetic materials. Much of this work lies at the interface with other disciplines. Research grouping members are listed below:
