We construct new organometallic complexes for catalyzing reactions relevant to sustainable chemistry. This includes bio feedstock valorization and chemical hydrogen storage applications. This research is fundamental for future implementation of both a sustainable energy system and a renewable bulk chemicals production that are commercially viable.
We construct well-defined homogeneous polynuclear cluster by careful design of ligand scaffolds. The resulting compounds are studied in-depth using various approaches and techniques. One of our focus areas is to develop novel organometallic catalytic reaction based on well-defined polynuclear complexes. Another topic of interest is to construct and meticulously analyze superatoms.
We construct supramolecular cages and utilize the distinctive physiochemical environment of their cavities to conduct catalysis, drug delivery, and enzyme active site studies.
