Landskron Research Group


Kai Landskron' group is interested in the synthesis of materials and the development of processes and technologies that reduce greenhouse gas emissions through energy savings, the acceleration of the transition to renewable energies, and carbon dioxide capture. Our research philosophy is to integrate fundamental science, applied science, and commercialization. Click here for our publications. One major research focus is Supercapacitive Swing Adsorption for the separation of carbon dioxide from flue gas or air via selective, reversible adsorption of carbon dioxide to an electric double layer. A second major research focus is on mesostructured high-pressure phases via nanocasting techniques, and the synthesis of ultra-hard materials near ambient pressure and temperature conditions. A third focus is on covalent organic frameworks.
