MADLAB is involved in tailor made synthesis of metallo-porphyrin complexes and probe, using a combination of spectroscopic techniques and reactivity, fundamental aspects of the heme active sites. In particular, the roles played by the weaker 2nd sphere interactions in determining the selectivity and, in many cases, the kinetics of the key reactions they catalyze; reactions important for realizing the goal of clean environment and energy in days to come. The group is actively involved in electronic retrosynthesis of complexes with the goal of reducing N2, COx, NOx and SOx efficiently and selectively for valorization of industrial waste. Emulating the design principles of metallo-enzymes MADLAB has successfully demonstrated water oxidation, hydrogen evolution and selective reduction of CO2 to CO under neutral conditions, with 2-20 mA/cm2 current density and  less than 100 mV overpotential.

Teaching

Teaching

Abhishek Dey teaches several courses on inorganic chemistry to the Master’s of Science and PhD level students. Inorganic Chemistry I in the post bachelor’s integrated PhD program run by IACS deals with the basics of structure and bonding in inorganic chemistry and Inorganic Chemistry II is an advanced physical inorganic chemistry course for final year Masters and first year PhD student that discusses spectroscopy, magnetism and chemical kinetics of inorganic complexes. He also offers two elective courses, namely, Advanced Inorganic Chemistry and Bioinorganic chemistry for PhD students. In advanced inorganic chemistry he teaches he theory and applications of EPR (including ENDOR and EESEM), Raman, Mossbauer and X-Ray absorption spectroscopy. In bioinorganic chemistry he teaches the structure and function of metalloenzymes involved in C, N, S and O2 cycles in nature.
