In collaboration with the Goldsmith group at Auburn, our JACS publication shows that incorporation of quinol groups into the ligand backbone switches product selectivity from H2O2 to H2O in the reduction of O2 at a molecular cobalt catalyst. More exciting work to come from this collaboration!
We had our first holiday party at the Farnum house since COVID! It was great to get everyone together as a family to meet the new addition (Adeline). Too bad the US couldn’t pull of the World Cup win.
Congrats to Motiur on publishing his awesome work in Inorganic Chemistry showing the power of Zn-catalysis for aiding in the LCET 2-electron reduction of Ni(IV) to Ni(II). This article was so highly reviewed, it was selected as a Featured Article!
The group celebrated Thanksgiving with a Labsgiving food potluck at a local park.
A warm welcome to Maksuda Parvin as a new graduate student in the group! She comes from Bangladesh and will be working on oxygen reduction catalysis in collaboration with the Goldsmith group. We can’t wait to see all you accomplish!
