Research Projects (Current and Past)
We are currently working on:
1. Developing homogeneous catalysts that can be used to deconstruct lignin into its monomers units for platform chemicals.
2. Developing homogeneous catalysts for formic acid decomposition at an ambient temperature and reduction of carbon dioxide to formic acid. A breakthrough in this project would lead to an eeficient use of formic acid as a hydrogen storage matrial for hydrogen machines.
3. Developing organic and inorganic chemosensors for cyanide and heavy metals detection in water.
