Thanks for visiting the homepage of the Sarkar Group. Our goals and interests are the activation of small molecules, C-H bond functionalisation, olefin poly- and oligomerisation, bio-inspired catalysis, electron transfer and magnetic materials. To this end we synthesise novel ligands and their metal complexes. These compounds are then probed by a variety of physical methods to characterise them and understand their properties. Reactivity studies are carried out to test the utility of these compounds for various chemically useful and demanding transformations.
