The Laboratory conducts research on the synthesis of inorganic materials for clean technologies as materials for: energy storage; optics; environmental protection; with biomedical orientation, etc. Potential partners and clients of the Laboratory can be found among the research teams in the country and abroad with similar scientific interests, as well as producers of inorganic materials.
Laboratory reactor system
The system involves the following modules:
- Two laboratory reactors for the synthesis in the temperature interval between 5 and 120°С, with precise control of temperature, рН value and rate of stirring;
- Vacuum pump for the synthesis under vacuum;
- Temperature-stable circulating chiller for cooling applications up to – 20°C;
- Disperser with different dispersing shafts for stirring, dispersion and homogenization, particularly of highly viscous reaction mixtures.
All modules can work both independently and in a system. The equipment has manual and software control and recording of the synthesis parameters.
Total reflection X-ray fluorescence spectrometer (TXRF)
By means of this instrumentation multi-element analysis of liquid samples or slurries is performed. It is suitable for elements with atomic number above 20 in a broad concentration range (macro, micro and trace elements at ppm level). Simple calibration with internal standard is possible. The spectrometer could be used for analysis of samples of different origin – waters, soils, ashes, solutions, graphite powders, biological liquids etc.
