 Project objective

Fedor Miloserdov (FMM, the fellow) alongside Prof. Mike Whittlesey (MKW, University of Bath, UK) designed the RuZn proposal that deals with heterobimetallic late transition metal – Lewis acidic metal complexes, particularly ones featuring an unsupported Ru–Zn bond. Having similar properties with other Pt-group metals, Ru is more than order of magnitude cheaper. The cooperativity between Ru and Lewis acidic metal (Zn) can enhance the stability, selectivity and reactivity of the catalytic system and lead to new catalytic applications of ruthenium complexes, making them more appealing for both academia and industry. The rationale for the RuZn project is the 2016 report by MKW on the convenient approach to a novel complex with an unsupported Ru–Zn bond. FMM is going to synthesize a family of new Ru–Zn complexes with different ligand environments and systematically study their reactivity and stability in order to find suitable catalytic applications. The RuZn proposal aims not only at developing a new range of ruthenium catalysts, but will also provide FMM a unique opportunity to work on the cutting edge of science, as well as improve his skills in leadership, teaching, mentoring and grant-management. As an interdisciplinary part of the program, FMM will have a secondment with Prof. Stuart Macgregor (SAM) at Heriot-Watt university (Edinburgh, UK), where he will acquire knowledge in computational chemistry while studying the Ru–Zn bonding and reactivity.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "RUZN" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
