Research

We are exploring chemistry under extreme conditions of high pressure in GPa range (1 GPa = 10,000 bar) in combination with extreme chemical reactivity displayed by fluorine chemistry.

Noble-Gas Chemistry

We explore XeF2 and KrF2 coordination complexes and Lewis acid-base adducts.

Fluorinated Materials

We work on fluorinated materials for batteries.

Frustrated Magnetism and Superconductivity

We are interested in novel materials displaying exotic magnetic properties or supeconductivity.
