Solid state chemistry - mesostructured materials.
Jun.-Prof. Mirijam Zobel
Our workgroup uses a variety of X-ray and neutron scattering techniques to investigate structure and dynamics of nanomaterials. In particular, we are interested in the
- Structure and dynamics of restructured solvent layers at the solid-liquid interface around nanoparticles.
- Nanoparticle formation and crystallization processes, and the role of ligand molecules during these, i.e. the cluster / particle - ligand - solvent interface.
- Pair distribution function (PDF) analysis for characterization of short-range order in non-crystalline materials - with the application in nanomaterials, MOFs, glasses and catalysts.
- In-situ and operando scattering experiments (XRD, PDF, SAXS / SANS) to investigate nanoparticle formation and growth, as well as supported nanoparticles in catalysts during catalytic cycling, catalyst formation and degradation.
We feature a laboratory diffractometer for pair distribution function measurements with high instrumental resolution and high PDF data quality out to at least 80 Angstroem. If you are interested in laboratory PDF data on your samples, get in touch with us.
