Professor Dimitri Gusev

Prof. Dmitry Gusev and his co-workers are developing organometallic compounds of transition metals with tridentate ('pincer'-type) ligands for applications in catalytic hydrogenation of compounds with polar C=O and C=N bonds, dehydrogenative coupling and dehydrogenation reactions of alcohols. These studies are supported by NMR spectroscopy and DFT calculations, and cover a wide range of important catalytic organic transformations, particularly reduction of esters, synthesis of amides and esters, and hydrogen production by acceptorless dehydrogenation of alcohols.
