Inorganic research at Emory ranges from organometallic chemistry, catalysis, and bioinorganic chemistry to nanomaterials chemistry. Specific research areas include novel nanomaterial synthesis, small molecule activation, organometallic catalysis and energy-related research. We 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. Collaborations across campus include the School of Medicine, the Emerson Center for Scientific Computing, and the Department of Physics.
