As the name of the department implies, we are mainly involved in the materials synthesis. Development of new synthesis strategies enables synthesis of new or improvement of the properties of the existing materials. The application of developed materials can be found in various fields, such as chemical and food technology, electronics, telecommunications, optics, medicine, ecology. The basis is the synthesis of various modern oxide nanostructured, composite and multifunctional materials. Such materials are nanoparticles with tuned surface properties, their colloidal suspensions, nanocomposites and nanocomposite particles, thick films on different substrates, nanostructured ceramics, etc. Besides controlling the synthesis, much of the effort is devoted to understanding the influence of the composition, structure and most of all structuring on the materials properties. In recent time a lot of attention is also devoted to developing materials synthesis methods that can be run on industrial scale.

Although the focus of our research is synthesis of materials, the research will be presented according to the type of materials:
