Daniel Gryko's Group


About Us

The research interest of Gryko's group is mainly centered around advanced functional dyes and catalysis. We seek to identify new chromophores and fluorophores with interesting properties. We are mainly interested in the following areas:

  1. Fluorescence of nitroaromatics
  2. Two-photon absorption
  3. Excited state intramolecular proton transfer (ESIPT)
  4. Synthetic methodology
  5. Optical limiting

From the point of view of structural platforms we are focused on but not limited to:

  1. Corroles
  2. Diketopyrrolopyrroles
  3. Pyrrolo[3,2-b]pyrroles
  4. Dipyrrolonaphthiridinediones
  5. Porphyrins
  6. Coumarines
