Marco Bortoli receives an MSCA grant
Dr. Marco Bortoli has received a Horizon Europe MSCA-Individual Fellowship grant with the project RATIO (RAtionally-designed Turbo reagents for Innovative Organometallics).
RATIO will explore the chemistry of magnesium-based organometallic compound, and their synergy with Lithium salts using ab initio molecular dynamics and multi-scale modelling. The aim of the project is to rationalise the chemistry of main group-organometallic compounds, providing a route toward cheap, green, non-toxic reagents.
The project will be hosted at the Hylleraas Centre under the shared supervision of Profs. Michele Cascella and Odile Eisenstein, and in collaboration with the experimental group or Prof. Eva Hevia at the University of Bern, Switzerland.
