My research group is interested in developing new catalysts, synthetic strategies, and reagents for useful redox transformations. This broad goal will be realized in two distinct contexts: 1) the development of catalytic methods relevant to stereoselective organic synthesis, and 2) the catalytic reduction of substrates related to energy conversion. The projects we choose to pursue in the group are motivated by both a fundamental, mechanistic interest in redox reaction chemistry, as well as a very practical need for new, efficient and environmentally-friendly processes.
Students and post-doctoral researchers joining the group can expect to develop a range of synthetic skills spanning organic, inorganic, and organometallic subdisciplines. This synthetic expertise will be coupled with training in the rigorous characterization of new compounds via NMR, UV-Vis, IR, EPR, X-ray diffraction, and electrochemistry. By defining key structure-function relationships in this way, new catalysts with exciting and useful reactivites are anticipated.
