Students in Dr. Guino-o’s group will work on one of the two interdisciplinary projects:
1) Investigation of triazolylidene N-heterocyclic carbenes, their synthetic preparation, coordination modes, and electronic nature. The goal is the development of new catalyst systems utilizing the resultant reactivity of the organometallic compounds.
2) Design and synthesis of metal-organic frameworks for possible applications in hydrogen storage and bioinorganic (bone repair) chemistry.
Both projects will employ organic synthesis through ligand preparation; inorganic synthesis through metal coordination and solid-state chemistry; and instrumental analysis through IR and NMR Spectroscopy and Single Crystal X-Ray Diffraction. In addition, students will develop proficiency in utilizing air- and water-sensitive techniques (drybox and Schlenk-line).
