Behaviour of atoms, molecules her specific interest  


Prof Jeanet Conradie introduction: video

Prof Jeanet Conradie, professor in Chemistry at the UFS’s, search focus is the synergy between experimental and computational chemistry in understanding structure and reactivity of transition metal complexes.

Her specific interest is computational chemistry. A super computer is used to study the behaviour of atoms and molecules in the real world. These reactions can be difficult and even dangerous.

Prof Conradie is regarded as one of the top-ten researchers at the UFS in terms of publication output units (POUs) and was in 2010 No 1 of the top 10 researchers at the university in terms of ranking per impact factor of journals.

She spent six months as a post-doctoral student at the Department of Physical Chemistry, University of Tromsø, Norway during 2002-2003.

She has 91 academic publications in print, three technical reports, delivered 16 lectures at conferences and has several poster contributions to international conferences.

In 2011, Prof Conradie and a colleague were invited to contribute to two cover articles in the high-impact international chemistry journals Dalton Transactions and the European Journal of Inorganic Chemistry.

The research in the group under Prof Conradie focuses on the characterisation of known and unknown transition metal complexes and intermediates by synthetic and computational chemistry. Transition metal porphyrin and related compounds, O,O’-Chelated titanocene and titanium complexes, Beta-diketonato-carbonyl complexes of rhodium(I) and rhodium(III) and Dithizonato compounds of transition metal complexes are currently being investigated.
