The field of inorganic chemistry is represented by the group of “Inorganic solids and materials”. The group of Prof. Schmidt is focused on topics and projects for investigation of synthesis, structures and properties of inorganic solids and materials for energy storage. Starting point of the investigations is the modeling of thermochemical behavior of substances. The use of computer programs for modeling (CalPhaD-method) enables an efficient planning of experiments and optimization. By avoiding “trial-and-error-methods” resource conserving experiments for synthesis and characterization of inorganic materials can be planned and realized.
