Nanoparticles and Catalysis for Green Chemistry

My group works at the interfaces between the fields of material chemistry, coordination chemistry and organic synthesis. We conduct research in the domains of catalysis using both the heterogeneous and homogeneous approaches and more sustainable nanoparticle synthesis. We have a special interest in magnetic particles and nanocrystallites of cellulose in catalysis, novel synthese of nanoparticles in solid phase and nanoparticles in ionic liquid media.
