Professor Smith’s research involves the investigation of transition metal complexes as applied to chemical transformations. This work involves the synthesis, characterization and reactivity of metal-ligand multiple bonds, the development of new scaffolds for spin-state tuning and photomagnetism in low coordination environments and the design of complexes for energy-relevant catalysis.
