Head of the department Professor Igor’ Vasil’evich Murin

The department was founded by Corresponding member of the USSR Academy of Sciences Professor Valentin Borisovich Aleskovskii in 1978. A history of the department is deeply rooted in 50-60-es of 20th Century. At that time in the University the classical studies in the condensed state chemistry have been fulfilled under leadership of outstanding Russian scientists R. L. Müller, A.N.Murin, S.M.Ariya et al.

The main point in the academic activity is to train the modern chemists, research workers in the field of solid state chemistry and materials science. At present time three academic levels are available for students: i) specialist’s degree takes five academic years to complete, ii) bachelor’s degree takes four years, iii) master’s degree takes two years (a bachelor degree is a prerequisite). The department trains post-graduate students (candidate of sciences degree takes 3 years).

Development of a physico-chemical base for inorganic materials science is one of the main directions of the research activity. Other directions are a chemical design and a study of crystalline, amorphous and nanostructured materials for various purposes.

Scholars of authority and highly skilled specialists are on the teaching and research staff: 4 professors, 4 associate professors, 4 senior research workers, 2 senior lecturers and 1 research worker.

He is a head of the Solid State Chemistry Department from 1989.

He is Honored Scientist of Russian Federation, Honorary Worker of Higher Education of Russian Federation, Honorary professor of St.-Petersburg University. As an author of the “Solid State Ionics” monograph he became a winner of the University award “For Proceedings” of 2012 year.

Research activity

I. V.Murin is the leading specialist in the fields of solid state chemistry and chemical material science. He is one among the founders of the promising branch of condensed state chemistry – solid state ionics. Murin’s scientific school implements the fundamental studies discovering a nature of superionic conductance of inorganic materials in crystalline, glassy and nanostructured states. Up-to-date theoretical and experimental techniques are used. Physico-chemical and nuclear physics approaches such as radiospectroscopy, EXAFS, impedometry, diffusion measurements, high pressure techniques are among them. Under the leadership of I.V.Murin computer simulation methods are successfully developed. Ionic transfer and structural disorder in inorganic, polymeric and hybrid materials are under these investigations. The results obtained in the way are especially useful in determination of searching criteria for novel superionic conductors. Modern computer technologies - parallel calculations by computer clusters – are in active use.

The Murin’s school has developed novel techniques of chemical synthesis including soft chemistry methods to produce superionic conductors and other solid phase materials with unique functional features.

The most efforts of Murin’s research group are in the production and study of superionic conductors and ion-conductive membranes with conductivity by lithium, silver, fluorine, chlorine, sulphur, oxygen, nitrogen and hydrogen ions. Nanoionic composite materials based on carbon nanotubes are also of group interests. The great attention is paid for the development of synthesis techniques and for the complex study of ceramic composite materials based on carbides and nitrides of zirconium, hafnium and titanium. The materials have a high durability and electrophysical features. The relevance and originality of the efforts are confirmed by a great amount of international and Russian grants (RFBR, INTAS, NOW (Holland), NATO, St.-Petersburg State University grants etc).

Academic work

He is a lecturer on training directions “Chemistry” and “Chemistry, Physics and Mechanics of Materials”( ChPhMM). He gives the following lectures “Introduction to materials science” (ChPhMM bachelor course), “Solid state chemistry and ionics” (ChPhMM bachelor course), “Solid state ionics materials” (ChPhMM master course), “Solid state chemistry” (Chemistry graduating student course).
