Research Interest

Dr. Pankaj Sharma ocused on chemistry the main group metal chemistry, in particular, synthesis and characterization of organoantimonic, organotellurium and organobismuth compounds; the ability to coordinate those ligands with transition metals and the application of these metal complexes to homogenous catalysis; synthesis and application of organometallic dendrimers containing ferrocene and metals such as antimony and bismuth. he is also interested in searching for novel precursors of a single source to generate sulfuric, telluric and selenium of pnictogen thin films.
