Our research addresses two separate areas, one that involves alternative energy and the second involving carbohydrate modifications. Our research in alternative fuels centers on the design of new metal ligands for the photocatalytic splitting of water for hydrogen production. We focus on the use of rhenium metal and pyridine based ligands in our studies.
In the area of carbohydrates, we develop new metal-catalyzed methodologies for the transformation of carbohydates into new materials.
