Our inorganic research interests cover the spectrum from physical-inorganic to synthetic inorganic, organometallic, and bioinorganic chemistry. We address problems in modern medicine and biology, energy storage and consumption, materials synthesis, photo- and electrochemical homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis, transition metal and main group organometallic chemistry, and solid state and surface chemistry.
