Our laboratory is engaged in a bit of synthetic organic chemistry as well as a good deal of synthetic inorganic chemistry. We seek to make contributions to two areas:
1) Provide transition metal based contrast agents for MRI that are supported by nonmacrocyclic chelating ligands.
2) Use an Aufbau (literally: "building up") approach to provide bimetallic and heterobimetallic complexes through the combination of two monometallic species.
More to share soon....
