Novel hydride complexes for chemical applications

  • Stasch, Andreas, (Primary Chief Investigator (PCI))

Project: Research

Project Description

Many main group elements are abundant, cheap, generally less harmful and sometimes even biocompatible compared with most other elements from the periodic table. This project will develop a range of fundamentally important well-defined molecular s-block metal and non-metal hydride complexes and investigate their chemistry and properties. These underdeveloped but emerging compound classes are of significant importance for chemical synthesis, hydrogen storage and catalysis. The results emerging from this project will contribute towards the development of greener and more sustainable technologies.
