Welcome to Consultancy Jan Reedijk
I am available for consultancy to companies and governmental organisations, like research councils and the European Union, on matters regarding metals and ligands, and their possible applications in medicine, catalysis, environment and molecular materials, and for science evaluations in the field of chemistry. My recent and earlier papers can be consulted at the website link given here. For activities related to the International Year of the Periodic Table and some scientific events, see below.

Scientific, Legal and Technological Advice on Metals and Ligands
The field of coordination chemistry deals with (heavy) metals and their binding to (organic) molecules (called: Ligands). When the ligands play a role in living systems, like proteins or nucleic acids, the field is called bioinorganic chemistry.

In the field of Molecular Materials I have been giving attention to:
Molecular magnetic materials; Ion-exchange materials; catalytic materials; luminescent materials.
In the field of Catalysis I have been giving attention to Oxidation Catalysis with a focus on biomimetic systems based on Iron, Manganese and Copper.
In the area dealing with Metal;s in medicine, we have been largely focusing on Pt and Ru, and their binding to DNA and DNA fragments.
