Sen Zhang and Robert Gilliard Awarded American Chemical Society Petroleum Research Fund Grants

In the Zhang Group the ACS PRF grant will support research on developing single-atom catalysts for the selective oxidation of methane to methanol.

In the Gilliard Group the ACS PRF grant will support the development of low-valent and cationic bismuth complexes for energy-relevant bond activation. Recently, they synthesized the first example of a carbene-bismuthinidene, which was highlighted in ChemistryViews.
