Technical Mineralogy (Mineral Materials)

Materials and building materials have always had a formative influence on the development of mankind. Starting from natural raw mineral materials, the development of modern materials and building materials, their properties and behavior, as well as recycling and reusability are the focus of materials science research in the technical age.

Expertise at the Department includes modern microporous materials (zeolites and catalytically active framework structures), high-tech construction materials and their manufacturing processes, mineral color pigments, and the properties of nanostructured mineral particles.
