Since its formation (in 1997), the group has been interested in several research topics in organic and organometallic chemistry.
These topics include heteroallenic derivatives of heavy main group elements, coordination chemistry, functionalized calixarenes as host molecules and group 14 chemistry.
Theresearch lab is equipped with all equipment needed for the synthesis of organic and organometallic compounds under controlled atmosphere.
The group has access to the infrastructure of The Faculty of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering (UBB) for the characterisation of synthesised derivatives.
Most of the reactions conducted in the research lab employ schlenk techniques.
The laboratory has a glove box system for the handling of air and moisture sensible compounds.
Single crystal diffraction studies are available via the facilities of the National X-Ray diffraction Centre from Babes-Bolyai University.
The group is using the computational resources of the Center for Molecular Modelling and Computational Quantum Chemistry.
The research group is part of the Research Center on Fundamental and Applied Heterochemistry (METALOMICA), composed of three laboratories: Applied Heterocyclic Organic and Organometallic Chemistry (AHOOC), The Chemistry of Low-Coordinated p-Block Elements (CLCPE), and Biological Inorganic Chemistry (BIC).
The research activities conducted in our group aim for the synthesis and characterization of some element-organic derivatives containing low coordinated p-block elements (such as heavy heteroallenes, metalylenes, etc). The compounds are synthesized under controlled atmosphere, in an air and moisture free environment, using Schlenk and glove-box techniques. The element-organic derivatives are used as ligands to obtain new coordination compounds as well as precursors for materials with controlled properties. Apart from the Schlenk-lines, the laboratory is equipped with a glove-box, and high purity solvents are obtained with an MBraun Automated Purifying System.
