Areas of Research/Expertise

Synthesis and solid-state Characterization of Coordination Polymers (CPs) and Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) containing pyrazole-, selenophene- and thiazole-based organic linkers for applications in gas storage of environmental / energy relevance (H2, CO2), luminescent ion sensing of pollutant metals / small molecules and heterogeneous catalysis (alkenes oxidation, CO2 cycloaddition to epoxides to get cyclic carbonates).
