Welcome to the MB group

Working @ the LACS.

The Laboratory of Asymmetric Synthesis and Catalysis (LASC) of the Department of Chemistry "G. Ciamician" @ the Alma Mater Studiorum - University of Bologna we always looking for highly talented and motivated students.

We are a young and dynamic research group with scientific interests centered on the employment of organometallic complexes in interdisciplinary applications: homogeneous catalysis, metal drugs and metal-"phosphorous".....

Asymmetric catalysis

Our primary research field. We are interested in the development of innovative catalytic methodologies based on metal-, metal-free and photo-catalysis.

Phosphorescent metal complexes

We are interested in the synthesis and spectroscopic investigation of chiral triplet-emitters (i.e. [Ir(III)] complexes) based on chirality @ the metal-center.


A very recent research field deals with the synthesis of alkynyl-[Au(I)] complexes with prominent cytotoxicity towards several tumor cell-lines.
