Spinel-Type Nanoparticles and their Surface Characterization with the Help of Molecular Metal-Oxo-Clusters 

  • Synthesis of structurally and morphologically well-defined spinel-type nanoparticles 
  • Catalyst testing of  the nanoparticles in the Oxygen Evolution Reaction (OER)
  • Synthesis of molecular Metal-Oxo-Clusters of different size and functionalization 
  • Characterization of the clusters via IR- and Raman-Spectroscopy as spectroscopic fingerprint for spinel-type nanoparticles
