Invitation to report

Nicola Pinna received his Ph.D. in physical chemistry from the Université Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris) in 2001. He has since worked at the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society (Berlin), the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces (Potsdam), the Martin Luther University of HalleWittenberg, the University of Aveiro (Portugal), and the Seoul National University (Korea). In July 2012 he joined the Department of Chemistry of the Humboldt University of Berlin as professor of inorganic chemistry. From July 2016 to April 2021, he was also head of the Department. His research activity focuses on the development of novel materials chemistry routes to nanostructured materials for energy and environmental applications.

He told us about theStöber Method to Amorphous Metal Organic Frameworks Coatings and Colloids.
