Areas of Expertise

Our research revolves primarily around organometallics, catalysis and bioinorganic chemistry, solving challenging problems related to energy, environment and human health. The first project focuses on development of earth-abundant metal catalysts for production of chemicals important for drug discovery, agricultural science and advanced materials. In the second project, we are interested in design and synthesis of metal coordinated bioactive molecules that can serve as anticancer or antibacte...

Our research revolves primarily around organometallics, catalysis and bioinorganic chemistry, solving challenging problems related to energy, environment and human health. The first project focuses on development of earth-abundant metal catalysts for production of chemicals important for drug discovery, agricultural science and advanced materials. In the second project, we are interested in design and synthesis of metal coordinated bioactive molecules that can serve as anticancer or antibacterial agents. The third project targets on developing inorganic photocatalysts to be used for organic pollutants degradation under visible light. Through these multidisciplinary research projects, students are expected to obtain comprehensive research skills and develop innovative approaches for sustainable chemistry.
