Research interest

My research interests are linked with development of new and optimizing existing electrochemical synthetic methods for organic compounds. Exceptional tunability of electrosynthetic approach followed by homo- and heterogeneous catalysis “tool-box“ leads to wide virtual structural diversity of requested molecules.

Here at HiERN, due to modern “carbon-neutral energy pool“ concept, my investigations are focused on the synthetic transformation of biogenic carbon feedstocks, including carbon dioxide, into novel molecules with desired properties to be used as fuels. The task requires rigorous search for suitable catalyst by the high-throughput strategy. The possibility to integrate the optimized chemical reactions into continuous-flow process is also planned to be examined.
