The goal of this project is the design and preparation of novel nanoporous materials for adsorption and catalytic applications.
Proposed research strategy is based on the multi-disciplinary and multi-level approach:

Level 1
The synthesis of novel materials followed by their detailed characterization (structural and properties) and modeling.

Level 2
Tailored material design, testing, and applications.
The principal goals of the project include:

- Synthesis of novel nanomaterials based on two-dimensional zeolites with modifiable architecture.

- Preparation of new structural types of molecular sieves.

- Understanding of the synthesis-structure-properties relationship for newly synthesized materials.

- Evaluation of the adsorption properties of the novel materials (with respect to conventional
zeolites and MOFs).

- Assessment of catalytic performance of the novel materials.

- Theoretical investigation of adsorption and catalytic properties of novel materials.

- Experimental and theoretical understanding of the interaction of biomolecules with well-defined
surfaces of 2D zeolites.

- General comparison of nanoporous materials (classical 3D zeolites, 2D zeolites, MOFs, and
mesoporous molecular sieves).
