Research Interests

(1) Coordination chemistry and organometallic chemistry of rare earth metals and actinides with emphasis on metal complexes with unprecedented structures, including metal–metal bonds and metal–element multiple bonds;

(2) Rare earth metal–carbon binary compounds, such as metal–arene complexes, metal–fullerene complexes, and metal graphite intercalation compounds;

(3) Redox chemistry of f-elements and its applications in small molecule activation and catalysis;

(4) Applications of rare earth metal complexes in bioimaging and medical imaging.
