Dr. Ioannis D. Kostas was graduated in Chemistry in 1986 from the University of Thessaloniki and received his PhD in Chemistry from the University of Athens in 1991, working on the field of main-group organometallic chemistry. He carried out postdoctoral research at the Free University in Amsterdam (1994-5) at the field of crown ether organometallic chemistry, and then at the Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung in Mülheim (1995-6) at the field of homogeneous catalysis. In 1996, he jointed the Institute of Organic and Pharmaceutical Chemistry at the National Hellenic Research Foundation in Athens, in which he is currently a Research Director. His current research interests include transition-metal homogeneous catalysis involving asymmetric and aqueous biphasic catalysis, catalysis by metal nanoparticles, dendrimer chemistry, and organic synthesis of bioactive molecules. He is member of the Association of Greek Chemists, the Association of Greek Researchers and the American Chemical Society. He has been coordinator and/or participant in 4 EC and 14 national and bilateral programs.
