Research Interests

Dr. Shkurenko's broad research interest is mainly concerned with the structure-property relationship of the crystalline materials. Large experience in the various aspects of single crystal and powder diffractometry is essential in structure determination, property elucidation and developing new porous materials based on Metal-Organic Framework
