I am a leader of a small team within the Spectroscopic and Microscopic (STM/AFM) Studies of Intermolecular Interactions Group.

Currently, our research efforts are focused on the application   of modern nanomaterials based on transition metals as catalysts for the continuous - flow hydrogenation processes of industrial and environmental importance.

The main goal of our studies is to create a fundamental basis for the synthesis of the novel and readily available nano-catalysts:

- for the production of pharmaceutical intermediates (medicines and vitamins precursors) and fine chemicals in flow conditions,

- for continuous-flow removal of chloroorganic micropollutants from water.
