Transition metals have a rich history in promoting organic reactions under mild conditions, which can be difficult or impossible by traditional synthetic methods. I will take an organometallic approach in my research to educate students in the disciplines of organic and inorganic chemistry because the future of these two fields are inextricably linked. My research plan is two-pronged: the first direction is focused on the synthesis and reactivity of metal-nitrile complexes leading to imine formation for potential pharmaceutical applications. The second is a discovery-driven project focused on the synthesis of novel diamagnetic chromium complexes and their reactivity in organic transformations.
