Research Interests:

The primary focus of our research work is to design novel transition metal complexes with the following perspectives:

  1. Intramoleular electronic coupling at the mixed-valent state.

  2. Delicate electronic structural aspects of redox non-innocent molecular systems.

  3. Metal ion mediated facile intramolecular organic transformations.

  4. Non-innocence of ruthenium coordinated "NO" and facile photocleavage of Ru-NO+/o bond.

  5. Metal assisted dioxygen activation leading to oxygenation of coordinated ligand.

  6. Polymer supported metal cluster derived nanostructured catalysts for efficient hydrogenation and oxygenation reactions.

  7. Metal catalyzed facile organic transformations under homogeneous condition.
