Research Interests and Grants
Primary research interest is molten salts chemistry: spectroscopic thermogravimetric and electrochemical studies of species and reactions (acid-base, redox, and complex formation) in molten salts. Other areas of interest are strengths of oxo acids and supramolecular chemistry.
To promote a critical appreciation of the links between various areas of knowledge, mainly, science, philosophy and religion.
