Research interests

The Department of Molecular Electrochemistry focuses its research activities on the fundamental studies of electron transfer processes and redox reaction mechanisms in newly synthesized organic and organometallic molecules with specific redox abilities, which are designed for various applications including energy harvesting, photovoltaics, molecular catalysis, non-linear optics and molecular electronics. This knowledge is also applied in the development of sensors and novel energetic materials. Research in the Department involves elucidation of the structure-reactivity relationship on a single molecule level including determination of redox reaction mechanisms and in-situ characterization of (radical) intermediates. Members of the Department are involved in the advancement of the electrochemical and in-situ spectroelectrochemical techniques and methodology for single molecule conductance measurements using break junction techniques.

Supramolecular Systems: Charge Transfer, Electrode Kinetics and Catalysis (presentation video, in Czech - download).

The research directions are:

  • Supramolecular electrochemistry (host–guest complexes, 2D and 3D architecture, molecular electronics)

  • Electron transfer in molecular wires (interacting and non–interacting redox sites)

  • Interaction of metal centers in inorganic complexes and organometallics

  • Catalysis (redox activation of metal–complex catalysts, electrochemical fixation of nitrogen)

  • Electrode/electrolyte interface (adsorption phenomena, electron transfer kinetics, cationic catalysis, oscillatory phenomena)

  • Organic electrochemistry (reaction mechanism, environmental and analytical applications)

  • In-situ spectroelectrochemistry (UV–VIS and FTIR) –detection of reaction intermediates

  • Bioelectrochemistry (electrochemical markers for biomolecules, water-soluble fullerenes, electrochemistry of drugs in molecular carriers, analytical applications)

Electrochemistry of organic and organometallic molecules (presentation video, in Czech - download).

The research directions are:

  • Reaction mechanisms of electrochemical redox processes of organic and organometallic molecules in aqueous and aprotic media

  • Intramolecular electronic interaction between two (or more) redox active centers, electrochemical studies of electron displacement, delocalization and aromaticity

  • Electrochemical investigation of new ligands and complexes, units for supramolecular nanodevices, molecular wires and bridges, redox markers and probes

  • Electrochemically generated precursors and/or catalysts for new ways of special organic synthesis

  • Selective electrochemical generation of excited or radical intermediates, their interception, identification and characterization; electrochemically generated luminescence

  • Environmental research – in vitro investigations of degradation or metabolic pathways, model or mimic reactions

  • Sonoelectrochemistry – Fundamentals, theory, development and application
