X-ray Crystallographic Studies of Inorganic Systems

Possible Projects:

  • Applications of cryolite fluxes to crystal growth

(2) Alternative methods of crystal growth and

effects upon crystal quality

(3) Modeling thermal motion in the solid state

(4) Electron density determination using X-ray

diffraction

Current Students: 1/C Percival and 1/C Smith

Overview:

My Ph.D. research was dimolybdenum and ditungsten paddlewheel complexes. The goal of this work is to understand electron transfer processes such as metal-to-ligand charge transfer and electronic communication between dimetal centers when connected by an unconjugated bifunctional bridge.

My post-Ph.D. research is the fabrication of nano-rods and particles to examine optical properties through laser spectroscopy. In addition, Ruthenium photo-sensitive complexes have been synthesized to examine their optical dynamics.

My research interests are:

EXPLORE ALTERNATIVE SYNTHESIS OF INORGANIC COMPLEXES USING MICROWAVE RXN EQUIPMENT.

COPPER-CATALYZED REACTIONS OF ARYL HALIDES USING A CONCURRENT TANDEM CATALYTIC METHODOLOGY

Current students: 1/C MacPherson and 1/C Thompson

Assoc. Prof. Amy MacArthur

Research interests:

  • development of inexpensive catalysts (Co, Cu, and Ni) to replace traditional, expensivePd, Pt, Rh, and Ir catalysts
  • development of catalytic reactions with two catalysts operating simultaneously in solution (tandem catalysis)
