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.
