Modern inorganic chemistry is an enormously broad field that spans a profusion of fascinating subdisciplines ranging from solid-state chemistry at one extreme to solution photochemistry at the other. Although no department can claim to cover all areas of inorganic chemistry, most of the important frontier areas of inorganic research are being actively studied in our department. The links below describe the Johnson and Doxsee group's research in solid-state chemistry, Professor Page's work on surfaces, Professor Hutchison's work on metal nanocrystals and his work on surfaces, Professor Liu's research on transition metal catalysis, and Professor Tyler's work on photochemistry and reaction mechanisms in solution. Regardless of special area, all students receive a broad education in inorganic chemistry. Entry level graduate courses emphasize the common interdisciplinary themes of synthesis, structure, and dynamics. Subsequent special topics courses then provide in-depth specialization in the particular subdisciplines. Organometallic chemistry is likewise thoroughly covered by researchers in our department. Projects in the Doxsee and Liu labs focus on the use of organometallics in organic synthesis. The Haley lab is synthesizing organometallic compounds with unusual electronic properties, and the Tyler group is studying organometallic polymers and the photochemistry of organometallic molecules.
