Nanomaterials for Sustainability

The central research theme of the Debye Institute is "Nanomaterials for Sustainability". Research focuses on the synthesis, performance and modeling of nanomaterials often for conversion, storage and more efficient use of energy. The institute provides fundamental knowledge for development of new technologies that are required for achieving a sustainable future.

The institute brings together six research groups from the departments of Chemistry and Physics. Since September 1 2022, ICC is also part of the Institute for Sustainable and Circular Chemistry (ISCC Institute).

These groups collaboratively work on three research themes:
