Inorganic and Organometallic Chemistry

Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Virginia explores compounds constructed around central elements beyond carbon. Using a variety of synthetic, spectroscopic, and computational methods, research groups are studying subjects relevant to inorganic/organometallic, coordination, bioinorganic, supramolecular, and materials chemistry. Main group, transition metal, rare earth, and alkali/alkaline earth compounds are used to study topics ranging from sensing, catalysis/electrocatalysis, nanomaterials, renewable energy, and small molecule activation to photochemistry.
