X-ray Crystallography: Arnold L. Rheingold, UCSD
Arnie is the best-of-the-best, and we are thrilled to have him and his team analyzing our X-ray quality crystals.
Computational: Russell P. Hughes, Dartmouth College
When it comes to organometallics, not many people know more than Russ. Recently, Russ became emeritus, but that has not wavered his passion for organometallic chemistry. When we want to know what the computer has to say about our complexes, we call Russ.
Elemental Analysis: William Brennessel, University of Rochester
Any research lab is not complete without an elemental analysis collaborator. Bill has years of experience in many of the most critical aspects of characterizing organometallics, including elemental analysis, NMR spectroscopy, and X-ray crystallography.
Cyclic Voltammetry: Colleen E. Krause, University of Hartford
In the Fall of 2015, the University of Hartford welcomed Colleen to their chemistry department. She is an expert in electrochemistry, and we will use her skills and potentiostat to gain useful information about our redox-active/non-innocent ligands. See Papers #11 and 17.
Group 15 Pnictogen Chemistry: Dostal Group, University of Pardubice
At ICHAC-12 in June 2017 at the University of British Columbia, a collaboration was born. Both of our groups have interest in stabilizing and isolating compounds derived from generating pnictogens in the +1 oxidation state within pincers and other chelating ligands. See Paper #14 for our first joint paper.
