The Zaikina group is a synthetic solid state chemistry research group focusing on the development of novel synthetic methods toward new functional materials that address current scientific challenges in sustainable energy.

Students in Zaikina group will lean unconventional synthesis methods toward inorganic solid state materials, will become experts in varios characterization techniques (X-ray crystallography, magnetochemistry, spectroscopy) and will be introduced to the methods of computational chemistry with the primary goal of development of novel synthetic methods and study of structure-property correlations in different classes of emergent functional materials.
