International laboratory "Solution Chemistry of Advanced Materials and Technologies" is a leading material science laboratory at ITMO University, St. Petersburg. The laboratory has strong international collaboration with leading scientific groups in the Netherlands, Canada, Israel, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.


Main focuses of the laboratory are the development of nanomaterials and nanocomposites for optics, electronics and biomedical applications. We are looking for new concepts and ideas to address current technological and academic problems while carrying out top-level science competitive at the international stage. Being the whole-cycle laboratory we are interested in both theoretical and practical aspects of the synthesis and manipulations of the matter at the nanoscale: from inorganic nanosynthesis and sol-gel coating to 3D-printing, fabrication of optical heterostructures fabrication and assembly of well-defined nanoarchitectures.


“TheoMAT” group of theoretical chemistry and modeling provides the fundamental support to the experimental scientific programs and also executes its own program focusing on the development of new methods for computational studies of complex chemical systems. Our fundamental goal is to provide a theoretical rationale and computational guidelines to enable in silico optimization of the experimental research.
