The Kessler and Seisenbaeva lab

Last changed: 08 April 2022

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.
