The research interests in the division of inorganic chemistry include such disparate areas as organometallic chemistry, catalysis, bioinorganic chemistry, and nanomaterials chemistry. Specific research areas include novel nanomaterial synthesis, small molecule activation, organometallic catalysis and energy-related research. We routinely employ a wide variety of synthethic techniques and spectroscopic methods including NMR spectroscopy, electrochemistry, electron paramagnetic spectroscopy, Mössbauer spectroscopy, and calorimetry.
We work in close collaboration with the Emory University Center for X-ray Crystallography, which is equipped with two state-of-the-art small molecule diffractometers and an additional instrument dedicated to powder samples. Researchers routinely collaborate with other divisions within Chemistry and with a variety of departments across campus, including the School of Medicine, the Emerson Center for Scientific Computing, and the Department of Physics.
