The actual research focuses on nanostructured materials, mainly dealing with the synthesis of nanomaterials by solution and gas phase routes, their characterization and the study of their physical properties. The main objectives can be grouped as follows:
- Synthesis of crystalline metal oxide nanoparticles, heterostructures, hybrid materials and thin films by novel nonaqueous sol-gel routes.
- Assembly of the obtained materials.
- Chemical and structural characterization.
- Study of their physical properties: optical, electrical, electrochemical, magnetic, catalytic, gas sensing, etc.
