My major is in Inorganic Solid State Chemistry and I have worked extensively in the synthesis and characterization of complex transition-metal oxide materials exhibiting magnetic and electric properties. On the side of the synthesis, my research has mainly focused in the preparation of metastable perovskite-structure materials by topochemical (structure preserving) methods. Such methods enable stabilization of thermodynamically metastable products of solid state reactions, by utilizing the different rates of mobility of cations with respect to anions or vice versa. Metastable materials often exhibit non-conventional oxidation states and coordination geometries, which in turn result in exciting magnetic and electric behaviour among physical properties. Recently, I have been exploring the application of topochemical synthetic approaches for investigation of the structural aspects which affect oxide-ion conduction in materials for potential applications in Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs).
