Research Activity :

Structural characterization by means of X-ray diffraction of
- Minerals (phosphates, arsenates, silicates)
- Inorganic materials with technological interest (hybrid and inorganic phosphates, borates)
- Organometallic molecules with known anti-tumor activity (cis-platinum compounds)
- Organic sulfoxides from asymmetric synthesis, precursor of (natural) chiral compounds
