Solution Chemistry


The laboratory has a long history in the studies on (i) complexation of different metal ions with oxime ligands, (ii) complexation of chiral compounds of biodegradable aminopolycarboxylic acids with different metal ions, and (iii) temperature dependence of nickel(II) complex formation with ammonia in aqueous ammonium sulphate solutions. Many of these projects continue in co-operation with industry and other research institutes.

These pages give a brief overview of the research activities. For more details, please see the latest annual report of the Department of Chemistry or contact the Head of the Laboratory.
