Area(s) of Expertise

  • Organometallic Chemistry


Our research interests are in synthetic and mechanistic chemistry of iron and ruthenium. Projects are underway in two areas:

  1. synthesis of new ferrocene derivatives with potential biological activity and
  2. kinetics of phosphine substitution in catalytically active ruthenium compounds.
