  • General issues of the synthesis, structure and reactivity of the compounds of the group 14 elements in non-classical valence states.

  • Generation, structure and chemical transformations of tetrelenes (carbenes, silylenes, germylenes, and stannylenes) and related multiply bonded derivatives.

  • Synthesis and redox reactions of metallatranes, metallocanes, intra- and intermolecular complexes, and other hypercoordinated compounds of the group 14 elements.

  • Reactivity of paramagnetic intermediates (radicals, radical ions, and others) of electron transfer reactions of the "carbon family".

  • EPR and UV spectroscopy of paramagnetic intermediates.

  • Quantum chemical calculations of the compounds and open shell intermediates of the group 14 elements.
