Welcome to Raju!

Dr. Raju Dey recently joined the chemistry department as a postdoctoral researcher to work on the design of homogeneous late transition-metal catalysts for hydrodeoxygenation of lignin model compounds. raju-deyHis project is a part of the ENERGI-X project “Renewable aromatics for fuel blending from lignin by novel homogeneous catalysis.” Raju Dey is from Kolkata, India, where he completed his MSc and PhD degrees in Chemistry with emphasis on organic chemistry, organometallic chemistry and heterogeneous catalysis.
