MY RESEARCH CONTRIBUTIONS
1. Non-covalent / Intermolecular Interactions of Fluorinated Porphyrins
Paper published in European Journal of Inorganic Chemistry > Vol 2014 Issue 16 > Pages 2653–2662, titled "Intermolecular Interactions in Fluorinated Tetraarylporphyrins: An Experimental and Theoretical Study" says about intermolecular interactions present in 5,10,15,20-tetrakis(2′,3′,5′,6′-tetrafluoro-N,N-dimethyl-4-anilinyl)porphyrin and its metal complexes, where we found very interesting interactions of organic fluorine which drive the rigid crystal packing pattern of this molecule.
2nd paper in Journal of Fluorine Chemistry which conveys the information about isostructural couples in porphyrins along with interesting intermoleuclar interactions of organic fluorine present in the crystal structures of 5,10,15,20-tetrakis(2,6′-difluorophenyl)porphyrin.
