Center for Materials Research (LaMa)
- Welcome to the web sites of the Center for Materials Research
The Center for Materials research is a core-facility of JLU and supported by the departments of and physics.
It serves for running joint research projects, for the coordination of study programs in materials science and for promoting the qualification of doctoral candidates.
The Center regularly organizes events covering recent issues of materials research. It also offers central experimental resources to its member research groups.

Ionic liquid-mediated low-temperature formation of hexagonal titanium-oxyhydroxyfluoride particles
Titania in general can crystallize in many different modifications. Beside the well-known modifications anatase, rutile and brookite there are other interesting derivatives, like the hexagonal tungsten bronze (HTB)-type Ti(OH)OF. This material has an interesting crystal structure with channels along the c axis within the material. These channels are large enough for the storage of lithium ions, so Ti(OH)OF could be an interesting material for future electrochemical applications. The used ionic liquid-based synthesis is carried out as a one-pot synthesis at a relatively low temperature (95°C). The methylimidazolium-based ionic liquids are used as both the reaction medium and fluorination source during the reaction.
