The research focus of our group falls in the broader fields of inorganic and materials chemistry with emphasis to applications in the areas of supramolecular, host-guest and nonlinear materials chemistry. We use advanced synthetic tools such as vacuum Schlenk line techniques, inert Glove box atmosphere, programmable hot air oven, microwave synthesizers and crystallization techniques to obtain our compounds. Further we use several state of the art instrumentation techniques and computational analysis to characterize and study the functional properties of the compounds that are synthesized in our laboratory.
