Nanostructured and biological materials have a wide range of potential applications in science and technology. Functional properties of biological and nanomaterials are strongly dependent on their interactions with the surrounding environment, where the presence of water in form of liquid or vapor is inevitable. In this project we will combine several experimental techniques available at partner universities to study interactions of biological and nanostructured materials with water.


  • Effect of hydration on the secondary structure of proteins
  • Mechanisms of hydration of amphiphilic nanopores
  • Hydration of nanostructured systems based on layered oxides
  • Hydration of nanocomposite polymer materials
