Inorganic & Organometallic Chemistry
We have extensive experience in the synthesis and study of new and unusual molecular inorganic and organometallic compounds of the d-,p-, and f- block elements.
Our goals are to synthesize novel compounds with early transition metals and actinide elements that exhibit novel reactivity and/or catalytic behavior, particularly in the context of activation of small molecules such as H2, N2, O2, CO2 and N2O. In addition to the dry-box and Schlenk techniques used to prepare and manipulate compounds, we exploit a variety of characterization methods, including multinuclear NMR, X-ray crystallography, EPR and electrochemistry.
