About the Research

Research Theme

Development of amphydynamic crystalline materials based on organometallic chemistry


Amphydynamic crystals, molecular rotors, crystal engineering, organometalic chemistry

Research Outline

My current research project at the ICReDD is focused on the implementation of non-covalent interactions in the design of amphidynamic crystals. Using the principles of the molecular design of organometalic luminophores and crystal engineering I aim to the development of new materials which would combine both stimuli-responsive luminescence properties and molecular motion in a crystalline media.
