My research focuses in studying the potential applications and capabilities of microwave heating in diverse analytical applications. By implementing systems specifically designed for focused-microwave fields we can greatly accelerate biochemical reactions and, also, expand the capabilities of ionization in mass spectrometry.
My research focuses mainly on utilizing copper-based catalysts towards the development of enantioselective alkene difunctionalisation reactions involving radical group transfer. The ability to combine enantioselectivity with radical group transfers makes this chemistry unique and exceedingly useful for the synthesis of biologically important molecules.
My research centers around the synthesis, characterization, and reactivity of multinuclear catalysts, specifically cofacial porphyrin prisms. We use coordination-driven self-assembly to furnish complex molecular architectures through straightforward syntheses.
I study non-adiabatic quantum dynamics and develop code for Libra, and open source quantum dynamics software package.
My research involves copper-catalysed difunctionalisation of alkenes, primarily using alkyl trifluoroborates as a radical source. I am currently working on enantioselective carboaminations and carboetherifications.
My research focuses on developing methods to analyze persistent organic pollutants in various environmental matrices. The optimized methods are then applied to measure chemical exposures in different populations such as humans and wildlife.
My research is focused on novel synthetic approaches to organic/inorganic hybrid materials using combined principles of polymer chemistry and coordination-driven self-assembly. The goal of this work is to gain a better understanding of interactions at the polymer/inorganic interface, and to obtain highly porous, mechanically robust functional materials that can ultimately be used for industrial applications such as CO2 capture.
My research focuses on designing, synthesizing and the characterization of Fe(III) macrocyclic complexes as T1 MRI contrast agents. I utilize NMR and MRI methods for characterization of complexes in vitro and in mice.
