Synthesis, reactivity and catalytic properties of transition metal carbyne complexes
Project Description

Metal complexes are an interesting class of organometallic compounds that can be useful for organometallic synthesis and catalysis. This project involves synthesis of new carbyne complexes and studies of catalytic properties of carbyne complexes for alkyne metathesis reactions.
