Faculty of Biology, Chemistry & Earth Sciences
Chair of Inorganic Chemistry II


The research is focused on catalyst design – developing novel homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysts. Working techniques of Organometallic Chemistry, Material Science and Catalysis Research are combined.

The center of our interest is:

  • Photocatalysis
  • Sustainable catalytic synthesis
  • Controlled polymerisation of ethylene
  • Synthesis of oligoethylenes
  • Catalysts based on most common metals
  • Energy storage
  • Bimetallic complexes
