Welcome to the Department of Functional Materials and Catalysis

Our Department emphasizes research on inorganic materials, bulk or nanostructured, and their functions. We work on porous metal oxides, silicates, and carbons, as well as on metallic systems, intermetallics and alloys. Our activities are wide-ranging and branch into many associated subjects or research fields, including materials science, solid-state chemistry, thermodynamics, crystallography, adsorption, biomaterials, energy storage and catalysis.
