Chemistry of aromatic metallacycles
Project Description

Aromatic organic compounds (e.g. benzene) are an important class of compounds in chemistry and material science. This project intend to develop the chemistry of metalla-analogs (e.g. metallabenzene) of aromatic organic compounds. It involves syntheses of organometallic compounds, and investigation of chemical and physical properties of the new compounds.
