    Collaborations

    Identification and characterization of synthesized novel heterocyclic compounds is analyzed by analytical spectroscopic methods (IR, NMR, UV/VIS) in collaboration with Department of Organic Chemistry in Faculty of Science, University of Zagreb. The new compounds have a potential biological and medicinal application (as antidotes in organophosphorus poisoning, antimicrobial and antioxidative agents) which is explored in collaboration with Institute for Medical Research and Occupational Health in Zagreb and Department of biology, Faculty of Science, University of Split.
