Paula Diaconescu Presents:

"Redox switchable catalysis"

Tuesday October 31st, 2017 at 4:00 PM in Chemistry A101

Switchable catalysis has received increased attention lately because it holds the promise of mimicking the temporal and spatial control exhibited by natural systems. We are studying a chemical method to shuttle between two catalyst states, by switching the oxidation state of iron in ligands containing a ferrocene backbone. This idea is applied to the ring […]
