  • Current research interests of the Group

    Our main research interest is in the determination of molecular structure and understanding of the structural variations of broad classes of inorganic and organic compounds. These chemicals often have important properties, such as the transport properties of metal halides in halogen metallurgy or the high energy content of nitro-derivatives of benzene. Our main technique of structure determination is gas-phase electron diffraction, often augmented with mass spectrometry, vibrational spectroscopy, and, increasingly, quantum chemical calculations. Aiming at the highest possible accuracies, on the one hand, and applying even qualitative models for predicting trends in structure variations, on the other, our activities encompass wide ranges of structural chemistry. Our work is carried out in very broad international cooperation with many scientists from all over the world.
