Laboratory of XRD and Thermoanalysis

Main research topics:

  • Structural investigation on the basis of powder diffraction data
  • Synthesis of ammine penta and heptamolybdate - layered materials
  • Synthesis of new isopolycompounds of aliphatic and aromatic amines
  • Synthesis of new peroxomolybdates, peroxovanadates and peroxotungstates
  • Structure and phase transition investigations of heteropolyacids
  • Phase analysis of complex phase systems (roman cements, historic binders etc.)

Main achievements:

  • Successful synthesis of several novel tetraperoxo compounds of Mo(VI), W(VI) and V(V).
  • Successful crystal structure solution of several compounds from powder data by the global optimisation procedure and other modern powder diffraction structure solution methods.
