Organometallics and main group chemistry
Advances in organometallic and main group chemistry are finding new application in a significant number of technologically important areas including medicine, energy systems, and synthesis. This symposium will highlight new directions in the synthesis, characterization and application of ORMT/MG species. The symposium will also present new work involving the synthesis and characterization of new cluster compounds.
This session will take place on the afternoon of Thursday, June 3rd in Dunn 206.
James T. Spencer is professor of chemistry at Syracuse University. His research focuses on polyhedral clusters, and solid state boron-based materials for thin films, nanoparticles, and nanotubes.
Karin Ruhlandt-Senge studied at Johann Gutenberg Universität in Mainz, Germany, the Philips Universität in Marburg, Germany and the University of California, Davis, USA. In 1991, she was awarded a Dr. rer. nat. for her work on inorganic chemistry and crystallography from the Philips Universität. She conducted postdoctoral work on group IIIA metal chemistry and crystallography at the University of California, Davis under the supervision of P. P. Power (1992-1993). In 1993 she accepted a faculty position at Syracuse University (USA), recently (2009) becoming department chair and distinguished professor. Ruhlandt-Senge was the recipient of an NSF Career award (1997 to 2002) and a NSF Special Creativity Award (2007). She held visiting professorships at the University of Auckland, New Zealand and Monash University, Australia. Current research interests extend to synthesis of s and f-block organometallics, materials chemistry, crystallography of reactive complexes, and development of green synthetic methods.
