Dissertation Title: Low-Valent Coordination Chemistry of Nonbenzeniod Isocyanides, a New Class of Aromatic Isocyanide Ligands
I have been trained as a synthetic organometallic chemist and this is where my research interests are focused. I have worked on synthetic coordination and physical inorganic chemistry of air sensitive electron-rich organometallic systems containing nonbenzenoid aromatic ligands. My interests include the design of novel organometallic scaffolds and chiral catalytic reagents.
