The research activities of the group are focused on the development of bio-inspired synthetic routes toward functional materials, in particular transition metal oxides. The formation of complex structures is achieved via controlled mineral deposition directed by organic additives and templates in bulk or in confined reaction environments. By combining a range of imaging and scattering techniques, we perform multiscale structural analyses of biogenic and bio-inspired hybrid materials with a particular focus on the nature of nanoscale internal interfaces. In view of potential applications, the synthetically generated nano-, meso-, and microstructures are correlated with the electrocatalytic performance of the materials.

  • Bio-inspired synthetic strategies towards mesostructured functional materials
    Polymer/inorganic nanocomposites | nanoparticle synthesis | nanostructures | (bio-) template-directed mineralization| particle-based crystallization mechanisms | transition metal oxides with spinel structure
  • Structural characterization of biogenic and bio-inspired hybrid materials
    Biominerals | hierarchical structures | nanoscale interfaces | intracrystalline occlusions | (synchrotron) x-ray small- and wide-angle scattering | electron microscopy
  • Structure-property relationships  in mesostructured transition metal oxides
    Electrocatalysis | electrochemical deposition of inorganic materials
