Research areas

Our main research areas

  • Solid-state NMR methods for quantitative and structural studies of inorganic materials
  • NMR studies of Portland cement-based materials: structure, guest-ion incorporation, quantification, degree of reaction
  • Development of new cement materials with reduced CO2 emission and energy consumption: New supplementary cementitious materials (SCM's), modified clinkers and new clinker materials
  • Carbon Capture and Utilization (CCU) approaches based on carbonation of minerals and recarbonation of end-of-life concrete.
  • Pozzolanic potential of new SCM's: nanostructure, reactivity, thermodynamic modelling
  • NMR studies of heterogeneous catalysts for hydrotreating and chemical synthesis: surface structures, reactive sites, host-guest structures, catalyst degradation
  • NMR studies of glasses, zeolitic framework structures, and clay minerals
  • Solid-state NMR characterization of borohydride materials for hydrogen storage and ion conductivity in batteries (together with Torben R. Jensen)
