Department of New Materials and Catalysis comprises a group of specialists working primarily on:

  • innovative, nanocrystalline, multifunctional materials (nanomaterials, nanocatalysts, metal composites);

  • formation of nanostructrural nitrides, carbides and oxides of metals via gaseous technique (MeN, MeC, MeO, Me - e.g. Fe, Co, Mo);

  • production of nanostructural catalysts using self-developed annealing and melting technologies;

  • modelling of reaction kinetics in a gas–nanocrystalline material system using The Adsorption Range Model;

  • characterisation of nanocrystalline materials using the Chemical Potential Programmed Reaction;

 

The group has:

  • internationally recognized expertise in Materials Science/Engineering/Chemistry;

  • developed methodology for designing and modelling nanocrystalline materials;

  • developed their own original approach to the nanocrystallite/grain size distribution method;

  • developed their own original approach to kinetic analysis of synthesis, nitriding, carburisation, oxidation and design of manufacturing technology for nanocrystalline materials;

  • expertise in morphological and structural characterisation of materials, e.g. nanomaterials, ceramics, polymers, composites.

 

The expertise offered includes:

  • research of manufacturing nanostructural nitrides, carbides, oxides;

  • manufacturing nanocrystalline catalysts;

  • morphological and structural characterisation of materials;

  • modelling reactions in a gas–nanocrystalline material system;

  • design of nanocrystallite/grain size distribution;

  • kinetics analysis of synthesis, nitriding, carburisation, oxidation and other processes;
