The Ortu Group
Main Group and f-Element Organometallic Chemistry

Welcome to the webpage of Dr Ortu and his research group!

Our research focuses on the organometallic chemistry of main group and f-block metals. Together with improving our fundamental understanding of these elements, we want to exploit their physicochemical properties for developing new methodologies applied to sustainable synthesis.
