Research topics

  • Surface chemistry of carbon nanoparticles (nanotube, graphene, graphene-oxide)
  • Carbon aerogels (network polymer precursors, tuning of physical chemical properties)
  • Modification of carbon surfaces with nitrogen incorporation
  • Metal-Organic Framework (MOF) – carbon nanoparticle coupled systems
  • Carbon based adsorbents
  • Adsorbent – adsorbate interactions on consolidate and soft materials
  • Relations between sorption- and surface chemistry properties
  • Synthesis, modification and characterization of nanoporous systems
  • Characterization of porous materials (e.g. BET surface, pore size distribution, density, iodine number, methylene blue number)
