Summary

Research costs for Academy research fellow is applied for The research project which is entitled "Molecular Polyhedra and Metal Clusters in Gas Phase: Structures, Properties and Supramolecular Catalysis in Confined Space" .

Self-assembling of metals together with suitable ligands results in giant, well-defined structures of either molecular polyhedra, discrete metal clusters or nanoparticles. These labile systems, which combine the properties of both metals and organic counterparts, provide polymorphic structural as well as operational prospects. The new materials as such have intriguing catalytic, magnetic and electronic properties. The research plan focuses on on gas-phase characterization and properties of molecular polyhedra and metal clusters.
