Welcome to the
Gelman Research Group
Generally, research in my group is focused on synthetic and mechanistic organometallic chemistry. The core of the work is the interplay between the structures and reactivity of organometallic compounds relevant to catalysis. We use a wide range of synthetic and spectroscopic methods for the manipulation and characterization of our targets: air-free techniques, NMR spectroscopy, X-ray crystallography, etc.
The major current direction of our studies include: the design of new carbometalated transition metal complexes-based catalysts towards activation/formation of polar and nonpolar bonds.
