Research Statement

Our research in inorganic chemistry continues to focus on the organometallic chemistry of fluorocarbons. We seek to develop transition metal systems which are capable of reacting with fluorocarbons - the most inert class of compounds created by chemists. In particular we seek new ways of selectively activating and functionalizing fluorocarbons using metals as catalysts to control these transformations. We also attempt to elucidate the mechanisms involved in these transformations.
