Dr. Keith Hollis from the Dept. of Chemistry at Mississippi State University will present "Designing, Developing and Applying Molecules to Solve Tomorrow’s Problems: CCC-NHC Pincer Complexes: Early and Late Transition Metal Complexes – Synthesis & Applications."
Abstract: The Hollis Group designs and develops next-generation organometallic ligands and complexes (CCC-NHC pincers) for many applications, which often requires the development of new synthetic methodologies. Access to new molecules and materials is required to solve many of the technological challenges facing society, such as improving energy-efficiency, direct conversion of solar energy to useful forms, and more cost-effective access to medicines. These goals are reached by developing efficient, scalable syntheses of molecules with interesting properties.
