Spectroscopical analysis of structure and reactivity of radicals and transition metals complexes in chemical, biological and photochemical systems.Supervisor: prof. Ing. Vlasta Brezová, DrSc.
This page shows details on the project. The primary projects are displayed together with a list of sub-projects.
|Project description:||The aims of the project are the investigations of the structure and reactivity of radical intermediates and metal complexes in the chemical, electrochemical, photochemical, and biological systems applying spectroscopic methods (EPR, UV/Vis/NIR spectroscopy) and electrochemical techniques (voltammetry). The research is oriented especially on the physicochemical characterization of organic materials with specific properties, e.g. conducting polymers, as well as on the study of magnetic, redox and spectroscopic properties of transition metal complexes. The photochemical investigations are focused on the primary radical intermediates generated upon photoexcitation of organic compounds in heterogeneous titanium dioxide systems, as well as in homogeneous solutions using spin trapping technique. A further systematical development of combined spectroelectrochemical and spectrophotochemical methods, as well as an improving of experimental techniques and the analysis of error sources in quantitative EPR spectroscopy will be carried out.|
