The objectives of the research include the discovery and development of efficient and effective synthetic routes to new, fundamentally important molecules containing P, As, Sb, or Bi in which the pnictogen centre exhibits an unusual local structure, is engaged in a new connectivity, provides materials with new, spectroscopic, physical, or reactivity properties, or has relevance in established bioactivity.
