Our group is working on development of new inorganic and hybrid organic-inorganic materials for environmental and biomedical application.
We are interested in the whole chain in developing new nanomaterials from metal-organic precursor chemistry, via mechanisms of their transformation into nanoparticles and all the way to real applications as adsorbents for water cleaning and remediation, (bio)catalysts, materials for biocontrol applications in agriculture, drug delivery systems, and even materials for new energy sources.

The group is run by 2 senior scientists, Professor Vadim Kessler and Professor Gulaim Seisenbaeva, possessing matching competences in the domains of coordination chemistry, solution reaction mechanisms, and synthesis and characterization of inorganic materials.
The group is fluctuating in number between 8 and 10 people, with 2-3 PhD students and 2-3 postdocs/visiting scientists, together with a number of interns and Diploma students.
