ASU students design and synthesize inorganic and organometallic complexes for energy and sustainability challenges inspired by biology or based on fundamental understanding of molecular structure and function, they make novel hard-to-soft matter interfaces, synthesize novel 2-dimensional materials, and combine inorganic chemistry, applied physics and materials science to design and prepare novel solid state and molecular materials for electronic applications.
