Dr. Toka Swu

Research Area

Our group is currently working in designing and synthesizing different types of coordination complexes to be used as a catalyst for organic reactions ultrasonically. The catalysts are designed with support from DFT calculations. To explore the biological applications of the synthesized complexes, docking studies are also performed. Not very actively, but we do Radiation Chemistry also. In the recent past, we have done nonlinear optic studies as well.
