Current Activities

Our primary research objective is to develop new methods by investigating and harnessing the reactivity of highly unstable intermediates. Essential to improving mechanistic understanding is the development of new strategies that allow us to monitor fleeting intermediates and manipulate their reactivity. To supplement our mechanism driven methodology development, we will develop a new rapid multiple injection NMR (RMI-NMR) system to monitor and control the reactivity of transient species. Representative areas of research interest include the development of new organic transformations; and the development of catalyst-transfer polymerization reactions.
