The research of Prof. Grela’s group is focused on the synthesis of organometallic complexes having in mind their immediate applications as catalysts for an organic synthesis. The group is trying to develop efficient and low-waste catalytic methods for selective synthesis of natural and pharmaceutically relevant compounds, transformation of biomass, sustainable production of fine chemicals, etc. Their goal is to develop innovative strategies and industry-friendly protocols that allow to produce various target molecules utilising the smallest possible amount of catalyst in a clean and environment friendly way.
Prof. Grela edited the thematic issues in the Beilstein Journal of Organic Chemistry:
Progress in metathesis chemistry III (together with Dr. Anna Kajetanowicz)
