Metals, ligands, and beyond: Frontiers in chemical science, driven by problems and advanced by solutions

Distinct properties and functions emerge from novel structures. Using chemical architectures built with elements across the entire periodic table, we work towards new discoveries in chemical synthesis, energy-efficient and structure-selective chemical transformations, light–matter interactions, energy conversion, and methodologies to interrogate geometric and electronic structures that underpin the full array of chemistry displayed from molecules to materials.
