    Research Interest

    My current research interest involves synthesis, characterization of

    transition/lanthanide metal complexes. The ligands that have been used in our

    group are pseudohalide ligands, carboxylic derivatives as well as a series of N-heterocyclic ligands.

    Depending on the 
    solid state characterization, the properties of synthesized complexes will be  examined

     

    Research Topics

     
    Inorganic synthesis, crystal engineering, biological activity,luminescence study
