Specific Research Area 1: Material Science. (Energy Storage): Metal Cyclophosphate Materials, and their application in Sodium-Ion Batteries.
As a promising alternative to rechargeable sodium ion batteries have drawn increasing attention owing to their lower cost; environmentally friendly, excellent recharge ability and higher security. Polyanion compounds including phosphates have been investigated as intriguing cathode materials for SIBs.
Project Objectives: I’m planning to improve the electrochemical properties of Na-ion battery cathode with s-p-blocks metal cyclophosphate also to explore new materials for cathodes to achieve high energy density. Phosphate materials have been focused upon due to the increase of redox potential and good safety caused by an inductive effect and strong oxygen–phosphorus covalent bond.
Specific Research Area 2: Development of new Radiopharmaceuticals for Skeletal Bone Imaging.
During the two centenaries ago, several new radiopharmaceuticals have been introduced for radionuclide imaging. In this project will focuses on the coordination chemistry of metal–cyclicphosphate with a view to addressing the variability of structures obtained and gaining insight into its radionuclide imaging. A new cyclophosphate have been study to be bone agents, synthesized and labeling studies are also will provide. It was found that the P-O-P linkage in the condensed phosphates was broken down in vivo because of hydrolysis by polyphospantes enzymes. More recently, pyrophosphates called diphosphonates with P-C-P bonds instead of P-O-P bonds founds more stable. In this study, we aimed to synthesize a new compounds continuing P-N bond could be use as bone-imaging agent, Phosphoramidates will chosen as a chelating agent, which could be forms a stable complex with 99mTc-tricarbonyl core. In this project I will develop the coordination chemistry of metal complexes of phosphate with different radionuclides. First, the ideal coordination reactions of different metal complexes and are examined. Secondly, a closer look for several of the most common radiometals currently used in or with significant potential for use in radiopharmaceuticals will be given in this project.
