Welcome to the Ghadwal Group
We are a synthetic inorganic/ organometallic group and aim at the synthesis of new molecules featuring a low-valent main-group element(s), particularly from Group 13-15, and exploration of their structure, reactivity, and physical (optical, magnetic, and electronic) properties. A special emphasis is given to the activation and/ or functionalization of small molecules as a sustainable means to access new valuable compounds.
Developing open-shell molecular systems for advanced functional materials and designing new ligand sets for more efficient and selective catalytic structures are among the other topics we are currently working on.
