Institute information Institute information

The Institute of Inorganic Chemistry (IIC) is focused on basic research in the area of inorganic and bio-inorganic systems oriented to optimization and development of new materials and technological processes in the following branches of science: inorganic chemistry, physical chemistry, materials chemistry, inorganic technologies and materials, theoretical chemistry, nanotechnology.

The main subjects of the research are the following:

  • Relations between composition, properties and structure of inorganic substances, mainly advanced ceramic materials, molten salt systems and hydrosilicates.
  • Thermodynamics of multicomponent systems.
  • Features and chemical reactions in inorganic systems, including interface of phases.
  • Development and application of theoretical and experimental methods for the determination of the structure and properties of matter.
