Inorganic materials are widely used in the heterogeneous catalysis and separation fields because of their ability to provide competitive and inexpensive solutions either as catalytic materials, support for catalytic materials or membranes/adsorbents for separation. Optimization and discovery of new catalytic nanoparticles, improved textured supports, selective membranes and adsorbents are the primary targets of the Inorganic Synthesis Laboratory.

Available equipment for synthesis and characterization of materials

The Inorganic Synthesis lab is fully equipped to undertake any kind of inorganic materials synthesis from sol-gel chemistry, synthesis in micro-emulsion, colloidal synthesis, hydrothermal synthesis and solid-state synthesis.
