Inorganic Chemistry

Research in inorganic chemistry at Texas A&M is among the strongest in the country in terms of research productivity and faculty recognition. The areas of interest span a remarkably diverse range of topics: structure and bonding in molecules, organometallic chemistry, chemistry of coordination compounds, bioinorganic chemistry, catalysis, and theoretical chemistry of inorganic molecules and solids. Research projects cover areas such as electronic spectroscopy, multiple metal-metal bonds, kinetics and mechanisms, structure and function of metalloenzymes, chelation phenomena, synthesis and properties of metal-rich solids, preparation and properties of layered materials, homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis, ion-exchange behavior of inorganic compounds, and theoretical computation and modeling of inorganic reaction pathways.
