Description

We use quantum chemical computational methods to study the structures and properties of novel inorganic materials. Our current inorganic materials modelling research is focused on:

  1. Thermoelectric materials for improving energy efficiency 
  2. New functional materials based on main group elements
  3. Photophysics and structural chemistry of organometallic luminophores

Areas of expertise

116 Chemical sciences
