1) Catalysis, synthetic methodologies and fine-chemistry processes
Chiral C3 symmetric tris(heteroaryl)phosphines and chiral C2 symmetric diphosphines with atropisomeric heteroaromatic backbone as ligands of transition metals for stereoselective homogeneous catalysis.
2) Materials and nanostructures
Poly-heterocyclic semiconductors: steric and electronic effects on spectral and electric properties. Highly ordered chiral poly-heterocycles. Highly ordered poly-heterocycles functionalized with fullerenes, crown-ethers and calyxarenes. Small bandgap poly-heterocycles.
