Chemical Synthesis

Chemical synthesis involves the design and production of molecules, polymers, and extended solids with new structure and function. Chemical synthesis enables access to new drugs for the treatments for disease, leads to new catalysts that enables new reactions, and produces new extended solids with novel structural motives and improved physical properties. Our faculty focuses on synthesizing biologically-active molecules, catalytic metal complexes, ultra-hard materials, photoactive molecules, electroactive materials, and nanoporous materials for gas separations.
