Research Experience and Research Interest:
The main area of research is organometallics with special emphasis on synthesis,
photochemical behavior and reactivity of metal carbonyls complexes. In Addition, a
reasonable experience in fast kinetics of the reactive, coordinatively unsaturated
Group VIB, M(CO)5, intermediates employing conventional kinetics and/or pulsed
laser flash photolysis with either visible or IR detection techniques.
