Group Research Interest

Research interest in this area focuses primarily in the synthetic and mechanistic chemistry of silicon, boron and related elements.

Current Research Interest

The synthesis of multiply-bonded silicon compounds, to study the effects of silicon p-conjugation related to the concepts of aromaticity and anti- aromaticity.

Mechanistic investigations of transition-metal silicon chemistry, as it pertains to catalysis and materials synthesis.

The study of organosilicon photochemistry and reactive intermediates, in fluid solution, inert matrices, and in molecular beams.

The synthesis of novel precursors to technologically important ceramic fibers and thin films
