Research Interests

We are a synthetic inorganic, organometallic and organic group interested in the development of new small molecules and ligands. We want to pursue the chemistry of the unusual, exploring less charted territories such as the main group elements and the lanthanides. Our interests include: the fluorination of small organic molecules, the defluorination of harmful chemicals, small molecule luminescence and photochemistry and the synthesis of persistent radicals for polymerization.
