The section’s activities encompass a wide range of projects in organic and inorganic chemistry which are based around the syntheses of new compounds and study of their properties and applications.
Specific examples include:
- homogeneous and polymer supported catalysis with transition-metal complexes;
- reactivity and reaction mechanisms of organometallic complexes;
- new organic synthetic pathways using transition metal complexes;
- asymmetric synthetic methodology and asymmetric catalysis;
- cycloaddition reactions in syntheses;
- syntheses of unnatural amino acids;
- photo- and electro-chemically active metal complexes and materials;
- synthesis and application of high-energy compounds;
- interaction of metal complexes with DNA;
- transition-metal based coordination and supramolecular chemistry;
- self-assembly and crystal engineering;
- modelling intermolecular interactions in transition metal compounds.
