Our main research interests are directed to the coordination chemistry of radioactive metals and supramolecular compounds. This also includes chemicals elements, which possess radioactive isotopes with potential value for applications in technical processes or medicine.

The main focus of our present research is directed to the coordination chemistry and organometallic chemistry of the elements  technetiums and rhenium,  lanthanoid compounds, gold complexessupramolecular cages as well as to the coordination chemistry of uranium and thorium. The chemistry of selenium- and tellurium-containing compounds is studied in a collaborative project with researchers of the University of Santa Maria (Brazil).

One of our goals is the development of bioconjugates for nuclearmedical diagnostic and therapy as well as for future metal-based cancer drugs. The used of advanced methods of organic synthesis plays an important role in the synthesis of our novel ligand systems.
