Application

Ferrocene (dicyclopentadienyliron) can be used:
  • As a scaffold for chiral ligands in asymmetric catalysis.
  • In ferrocene-based electrolytes for dye sensitized solar cells applications.
  • In the synthesis of unsymmetrical ferrocene ligands used as catalysts in cross-coupling, hydrogenation, allylic substitution, hydroformylation and aldol reactions.
  • In the synthesis of two-dimensional hexagonally ordered mesoporous carbon (CMK-5) via chemical vapor deposition method, which is used as a catalyst support in oxidation of methanol.
  • In the synthesis of molecular hybrids of ferrocene and fullerene (Bucky ferrocenes).
  • In the preparation of ferrocenium salt which is used as a mild oxidant.

Atomic layer deposition (ALD) techniques have emerged in the last ten years to meet various needs including semiconductor device miniaturization, conformal deposition on porous structures and coating of nanoparticles. ALD is based on two sequential self-limiting surface reactions.

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