About/Biography
Dr. Catherine Raptopoulou holds a Chemistry degree from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (1987) and completed her PhD in Inorganic Chemistry at the same university (1992) on biomimetic complexes of the manganese center in photosystem II and molybdenum-copper antagonism in biological systems. She worked as postdoctoral fellow at the Laboratory of Crystallography, Institute of Materials Science, NCSR "Demokritos" (1992-1999) and as Collaborating Researcher at the same lab (2000-2004). Since 2005 is a research scientist at the IMS and since 2013 is Director of Research at the INN. Her research focuses on the synthesis and study of coordination compounds with relevance to various fields including bioinorganic and materials chemistry, molecular magnetism, structure-properties relationship, reactivity of chemical systems and crystal engineering. Her research expertise covers synthetic techniques under ambient and inert atmosphere, and single crystal X-ray crystallography. She has been involved in 9 Ph.D. theses (3 as supervisor) and 2 M.D. thesis. She has published 554 papers in international peer-reviewed scientific journals (Maυ 2020), 16 publications in peer-reviewed Congress Proceedings, 3 book chapters and numerous presentations (oral and poster) in conferences. She has more than 10800 hetero-citations and h-index of 64 (May 2020).
