Research

Our research focuses on the synthesis of organometallic complexes and their use in various chemical transformations. We also have interests in the application of organometallic complexes in biological applications. Our research aims to develop our students’ expertise in synthesis, spectroscopy and their catalytic and biological applications while contributing to scientific knowledge.

 

Olefin Transformation

 

Olefins are very important chemicals which are obtained from petroleum refining. They are usually transformed to other intermediates which are important in various industries. Our group synthesizes metal complexes which are utilized in the hydroformylation of olefins into linear and branched aldehydes.
