Supramolecularly stabilized transition metal complexes
One research project will be the synthesis and stabilization of high-valent early first-row transition metal complexes by encapsulation in zeolite cages. While initial studies will focus on terminal oxo and nitrido complexes, the investigation of a variety of chalcogenido and pnictogenido compounds of V, Cr, Mn and Fe is envisioned. Major goals of this project include in situ spectroscopic characterization of reactive species and exploration of their catalytic applications.
