RESEARCH EXPERIENCE AND INTERESTS:

  • the design and synthesis of novel functionalized bis(ethylenedithio)-tetrathiafulvalene (ET) containing molecular building blocks for the self assembly of supramolecular polymetallic systems with multiple physical properties.

  • supramolecular coordination complexes
    It is intended to prepare new metallosupramolecular systems and nanotubes employing phenanthroline or bipyridine units and copper (I) as coordinating species, elucidate their structures, and determine the ability of these metallosupramolecular nanotube systems to function as ion-channels in bilayer lipid membranes and as to whether the redoxstates of these systems can modulate their performance as ion channels.

  • the synthesis and characterization of chiral lanthanide complexes with tripod-like acyclic neutral ligands, and development of of luminescent and magnetically orientable liquid crystals containing lanthanide metal ions.
