[TechUkraine proud] Ukrainian scientist develops the inorganic nanostructures research lab at ETH Zürich

During 10 years in Switzeland, Ukrainian Prof. Dr. Maksym Kovalenko develops KovalenkoLab based on the Laboratory of Inorganic Chemistry, Department of Chemistry and Applied Biosciences, ETH Zürich.
KovalenkoLab – Functional Inorganic Materials Group is focused on challenges related to the chemistry, physics and applications of inorganic nanostructures.

  • Central to the efforts is the synthesis of inorganic nanocrystals (“NCs”), and the integration and/or self-​assembly of NCs into multifunctional solid state structures.
  • Through the proper design and characterization of NC surface chemistry and inter-​NC medium, we aim to transform the individual properties of NCs into useful collective properties of NC-​based solids.
  • Synthetic work and rigorous materials characterization are the cornerstones of our research.
  • Collectively, these experimental efforts should ultimately provide general, cost-​efficient, and high-​throughput routes to solid-​state nanostructured materials for applications in energy conversion and storage.
