Research Interests

Our research interest focuses on the chemistry of group 13 and 14 elements, especially those electronically and coordinatively unsaturated species. To handle such highly reactive molecules, students are trained in synthesis and characterization of air- and moisture-sensitive compounds. The undergoing projects are listed as follows:

  • Boron Cations and Catalysts

  • Multidentate Metallylenes

  • Stable Free Radicals
