Expertise

Our research is centered on the synthesis and mechanisms of organometallic compounds, especially those compounds containing silicon. Most recently we have been studying the chemistry of polysilanes, especially that of cyclohexasilane, Si6H12, incorporating basic investigations into its ability to form novel derivatives and complexes.
