Event Title

Synthesis of a Stimulus Responsive LX-type ligand

Research Mentor(s)

Scheuermann, Margaret

Description

Transition metals can act as catalysts facilitating important chemical transformations. The properties of the catalyst can be controlled by modifying the ligands, atoms that are attached to the metal. Most ligands have a fixed shape and properties, but a few can change in response to a stimulus, in this case a cation, thus changing the properties of the active catalyst in situ. The focus of my project is to synthesize novel stimulus responsive transition metal complexes of Pt, Au, and Ir, using a pre-ligand developed at Western.
