Our group’s research falls within the general field of bio-inspired inorganic chemistry. The common theme is the synthesis and characterization of inorganic complexes that mimic the structure and/or function of metalloenzymes. All of our projects are multifaceted, combining inorganic coordination chemistry with mechanistic studies, spectroscopic characterization (UV-vis, EPR, MCD, X-ray absorption, resonance Raman), and computational (DFT) analysis.
