The applied organometallics group of the University of Padua is a young and dynamic group that enthusiastically carries out cutting-edge research on various fronts of transition metal chemistry. In particular, it ranges from catalysis to bioinorganic chemistry to optoelectronics.


French-Italian Coordination Chemistry Days

Our PhD students Francesco and Giovanni, together with Prof. Andrea Biffis, participated at the French-Italian Coordination Chemistry Days at Insitut de Science et d’Ingénierie Supramoléculaires (ISIS) in Strasbourg (FR). It was an occasion for Italian and French scientists to promote exchange and collaboration in coordination chemistry and beyond.
