Coordination to Metal Ions

Take those ligands and hook 'em up with metal ions.

Probing the Properties

Let's probe the properties of these metal-ligand complexes. We'll use NMR, cyclic voltammetry, IR, crystallography and many more techniques to analyze our samples.

Ligand Design and Synthesis

I've made a lot of ligands in my life: some are paramagnetic, some are fluorescent. We can make them, we can buy them, we can "borrow" them from someone else.
