Our research is mainly focused on developing concepts on how to avoid metals during various catalytic processes. Generally, such catalytic processes have been heavily relying on the use of heavy, rare, expensive and very often toxic metals. For example, we have developed ways to accomplish C-C cross coupling reactions without any metals. In this direction, we have been exploring various low-valent organo-main group species for their efficacy in catalytic CO2 reduction and functionalization to various value added products avoiding any transition metal based catalysts.
