Inorganic Materials & Catalysis

The focus of the group’s scientific activity is in the chemistry and applications of boron cages. Their geometric forms and the fact that they are made of a semi-metal, boron, give them unique properties largely unexplored. Today, the chemistry of boron clusters, has achieved a sufficient degree of maturity that has led to new applications, in many cases not attainable with conventional organic compounds. For instance, boron clusters readily offer structural hollow spheres, something that is utterly difficult with organic compounds. Boron clusters are applied in this group in the fields of energy, environmental science, molecular electronics and medicine.
