Research in the Buchwald Group combines elements of organic synthesis, physical organic chemistry and organometallic chemistry to devise catalytic processes of use in solving problems of fundamental importance.
The Ceyer group explores the atomic level dynamics of the interactions of molecules with surfaces of materials that serve as catalysts relevant to energy production and environmental sustainability or as templates for nanodevices.
The Gilliard Lab is engaged in energy-relevant chemical synthesis at the interface of inorganic and organic chemistry that impacts the discovery of new chemical reagents and the design of redox-active and/or luminescent molecular materials.
The Peng Laboratory develops optical imaging techniques and nanoprobes to enable long-term single-molecule imaging in living systems and reveal molecular interactions that are responsible for human diseases.
Broadly focused on synthetic, supramolecular, analytical, and materials chemistry, the Swager Group is interested in a spectrum of topics with an emphasis on the synthesis and construction of functional assemblies.
