Students in my research group are involved in three main focus groups; all of which employ synthetic organic chemistry as a basis requirement. Another key feature of our research involves the photophysical aspect; these employ various spectroscopies, i.e. UV-Vis, fluorescence as well as theoretical and quantum computational studies. Given below in brief outline, these areas are described in greater detail under the Research link as well as under Publications.
(1) Dual fluorescent chemosensors for ion and molecule recognition
(2) Development of new dual fluorescent dyes and
(3) Organic dyes for dye-sensitized solar cells
