Group description

Research group at the Max Planck institute of Colloids and Interfaces

The group at the Max Planck institute of Colloids and Interfaces is constituted by three group members: Dr. Savateev (main PI), Dr. Giusto (co-PI), and Dr. Sonia Żółtowska (postdoc). Here the synergies between the focus of two group leaders enables to leverage their deep understanding in carbon nitride-based materials and preparation thereof, including metal poly(heptazine imides) and thin films by chemical vapor deposition. The purpose of the MPIKG group is to prepare carbon nitrides with metal nanoparticles via different methods and perform preliminary tests.
Here, the design of the materials and the structure of the membrane is a crucial point for obtaining microrobots that can efficiently convert inputs in outputs with high added value. By means of chemical vapor deposition we aim to deposit carbon nitride and/or poly (heptazine imides) nanomaterials within a porous inorganic frame. The as-deposited materials are then eventually surface coated with noble metal nanoparticles to enhance the photoactivity and reaction selectivity.
