Oxidative chemical vapour deposition of (5,15-diphenylporphyrinato)nickel(II) (NiDPP) with iron(III) chloride as oxidant yielded a conjugated poly(metalloporphyrin) as a highly coloured thin film, which is potentially useful for optoelectronic applications. This study clarified the reactive sites of the porphyrin monomer NiDPP

Tungsten Disulfide (WS2) is considered to be a promising Hydrogen Evolution Reaction (HER) catalyst to replace noble metals (such as Pt and Pd). However, progress in WS2 research has been impeded by the inertness of the in-plane atoms during HER.

Solid-State Metathesis Materials Synthesis

In the last two decades, a new method termed solid-state metathesis (SSM) has been developed to synthesize compounds that are often difficult to produce conventionally.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
