This multidisciplinary research program closely integrates experiments and computations toward the overarching goal of understanding the structural, energetic, and mechanistic factors leading to selective, energy-efficient, and sustainable anion separations with reactive, self-organizing receptors and frameworks.
The overall goal of this project is to investigate fundamental issues of gas separations by nanostructured architectures and unconventional media that selectively bind and/or transport target molecular species via tailored interactions.
The overarching goal of this research project is to understand how to control selectivity through tuning cooperativity in multi-functional catalysts.
The overarching goal of this project is to attain a fundamental, predictive understanding of key chemical processes in aqueous solutions, at mineral-water interfaces, and within geologic media that affect mineral nucleation, growth, and dissolution and drive changes in porosity, permeability and water quality.
Develop a fundamental understanding of the synergy between strong interactions at the ligand-metal binding site and weak interactions in the surrounding coordination sphere for the selective separations and stimuli-responsive release of lanthanides
