This subarea of research investigates the low-coordinated chalcogenido metalates. In spotlight are the elements iron, mercury, lead and bismuth.
Ionic liquids possess unique properties as high solubility ability, low vapor pressure etc. We use ionic liquids as solvents for the development of novel compound classes which are inaccessible via classical synthesis methods.
Goal is to synthesize and crystalize of metal free electrides as high reactive reducing agents.
