Research

My group's research involves the study of organometallic complexes in two areas:

Metallacarborane chemistry (complexes with boron cage ligands);

Metal alkylidyne chemistry (complexes with metal-carbon triple bonds).

Our objectives are essentially three-fold: synthesize the complexes, characterize them using techniques such as IR, NMR, UV-vis spectroscopy, and then analyze them for properties that are rarely studied in these two classes of complex, namely electrochemical activity and/or photoluminescence. Such complexes may ultimately be useful for sensing or LED technologies.
