Focusing on chemistry, catalysis for energy applications

We design, synthesize, and characterize ligands and organometallic complexes for catalysis.

We conduct structure-function studies of complex molecular and material systems including hydrogen storage media and biomass for renewable energy. (ligand and catalyst synthesis, tandem catalysis, novel reaction media).
