Laboratory of Metal Hydrides

Russian Academy of Sciences

(INEOS RAS, Moscow, Russian Federation)
Head of laboratory Prof. Elena S. Shubina


Our main research interests are
  • Transition metal and main group element hydrides reactivity
  • Mechanistic studies of stoichiometric and catalytic reactions involving migration of hydrogen ions (as e.g. proton transfer, hydride transfer, formation and reactivity of dihydrogen complexes)
  • Non-covalent interactions in the coordination sphere of transition metal (hydride) complexes and supramolecular assemblies based on these interactions
  • Novel types of hydrogen bonding in organometallic chemistry
These studies are performed using combination of low temperature molecular spectroscopy measurements and quantum chemical calculations.
