Inorganic chemistry: electron transfer, organometallic chemistry. Nanoscience: molecular electronics, nanosensors

Our research is focused on three areas: (1) electron transfer on the time scale of molecular vibrations in inorganic charge transfer complexes, (2) molecular electronics and nanoscience, and (3) atom transfer chemistry of organometallic complexes.
