Eleftheria Petalidou studied at the National Kapodistrian University of Athens in the Department of Chemistry and continued her studies in the field of Inorganic Chemistry as a postgraduate student, producing research and teaching work, under the supervision of Professor C. Mertis. During hers postgraduate studies she specialized in the synthesis and characterization of complexes sensitive to oxygen and moisture using high vacuum and inert atmosphere techniques. She studied mononuclear and clusters of rhenium, molybdenum and tungsten with multiple bonds and their activity in stoichiometric and catalytic reactions. She also has experience in spectroscopy techniques (visible, ultraviolet and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy) and chromatographic (gas chromatography). Afterwards, she became a doctoral student and studied the selective oxidation of alcohols and electrophilic addition of bromine to alcohols with tungsten complexes while at the same time she was responsible for training undergraduate and postgraduate students in laboratory techniques. During her research work she has published articles in international scientific journals and has participated in numerous national and international conferences. She was also a member of the Organizing Committee of the International Conference “8th FIGIPAS Meeting in Inorganic Chemistry”. Alongside her research work, she began teaching science in private schools. She joined the Pierce faculty in 2017.
