Materials Synthesis Department focuses on advanced materials. The aim of our research is to obtain knowledge of materials chemistry for the controlled synthesis of new materials with desirable properties. Materials of interest are nanoparticles, (nano)composites, colloids, magnetic fluids, ceramics for applications in medicine, electronics, chemical technology, biotechnology, ecology, and sensorics.
