Joined Yeshiva University in 2010.
Organometallic chemistry lies at the interface between organic and inorganic chemistry. We devote our research to designing new palladium complexes as catalysts to functionalize aromatic molecules. The best strategy is to aim not only at catalyst screening, but mainly at detection, synthesis and study of potential reaction intermediates. A detailed understanding of the stability and reactivity of these organometallic species can provide useful information for the improvement of catalytic performance or lead to the discovery of new catalytic transformations.
