Research Interests 
  • Lanthanide and transition metal clusters: Evaluating HER/ OER/ water splitting and magnetic properties (SMMs and MCEs)
  • Organoantimony based discrete molecular assemblies: biological studies, designed control of optical band-gaps and its potential applications
  • Main group based Inorganic ring systems: Stabilizing anions by weak interactions, functionalized macrocycles for assembling macromolecular systems
