Research in the Neely group focuses on the fundamental chemistry of first-row transition
metal catalysis. This work relies on insights from inorganic, organometallic, and
organic chemistry to understand the underlying reactivity of transition metal complexes
during the catalytic cycle. We are currently applying this approach for the development
of iron-catalyzed C–N and C–C bond-forming methods.
