סמינר בכימיה אורגנית: Targeting Energy Solutions: From Fundamental to Applied Inorganic Redox Chemistry
Dr. Gabriel Menard, UCSB
This talk will broadly focus on designing and investigating main-group and/or transition-metal based redox-active molecules, targeted for use in fundamentally new bond activation chemistry and energy applications. The first part will primarily focus on the design of redox-active metal complexes for use in chemical energy storage applications, specifically using ammonia as a non-carbon-based energy vector. The second part will focus on our recent work investigating new cooperative main-group/transition metal reactivity involving P(+5)=O centers. The most recent iteration of this work into cluster carborane chemistry for the applied, electrochemically-driven capture and release of uranium will also be described.
