Application of intermolecular interactions on catalysis, dynamic combinatorial chemistry, and fuels for molecular machines

Line of research
Weak molecular interactions (hydrogen bonding, metal coordination, ion-dipole interactions and the like) are at the basis of supramolecular chemistry. These interactions are used in our laboratory in the development and control of systems under thermodynamic control (dynamic combinatorial chemistry).We also apply supramolecular interactions to the study of chemical fuels for molecular machines. Part of our work is devoted to the design and development of selective supramolecular catalysts based on nonheme iron complexes for hydrocarbon oxidation.
