Our group has changed directions! Prior to 2005, we did organometallic chemistry and catalyst discovery. For the last few years, we have been carving out a new home for ourselves in the area of fluorinated aromatic polymers, using the fluoroaromatic synthetic chemistry for which our group is primarily known.

Hahn Hall. Our labs are the first four windows on the second floor.
