  • Area of Specialization: Coordination Chemistry

Research Extension:

Synthesis and characterisation of polynuclear Cu,Mn,Fe complexes and study of their electron   transfer reactions.These are interesting due to their potential redox catalytic activity.

Synthesis and characterisation of Bio organometallic, Chalcogenolate compounds--model Enzyme complexes containing metal active site (Fe-only hydrogenases, Ni-Fe hydrogenase, Nitrile hydratase etc.).The study involves synthesis of Transition metals inorganic complexes with biologically relevant ligands that mimic the active sites of metalloenzymes in their spectroscopic and catalytic behaviours.Characterisation of these complexes using different instrumental techniques.
