Recently I am
working on catalytic activity of heavy metals as palladium,
ruthenium, iridium and rhodium. I am interested mainly in
the reaction mechanism of hydrogenation, redox isomerization
and dehalogenation processes using Quantum Mechanical
I am interested
also in TD-DFT calculations for simulating UV-Visible
spectra and studying excited states, respectively.
From my PhD
studies I have been working on intramolecular rearrangements
of macrocyclic metal (M3+ metal ions of Group 3A,
Ln3+) complexes. I like studying symmetric
effects of complexes and conformational properties of
isomers with QM methods.
small molecules on inorganic systems studying by ab initio
During my PhD
and MSc studies I did multinuclear NMR and UV-Vis
measurements on aluminium chelate complexes and on
platinum-thallium metal-metal bonded complex in DMSO.
