Claude Piguet

Supramolecular chemistry of f-elements.
Synthesis of luminescent and magnetically active polymetallic materials. Thermodynamics of self-assembly. Molecular near-infrared to visible upconversion using linear optics. Thermotropic luminescent liquid crystals.

Istvan Szilagyi

Our research interest involves synthesis, characterization and application of lamellar inorganic materials including layered double hydroxides, titanates and graphite oxide. We particularly focus on aggregation of such nanoparticles in dispersions and their delamination into unilamellar nanosheets in the presence of polyelectrolytes or ionic liquids. We are also interested in applications of these systems in environmental processes, catalysis or as delivery agents.
