Periodic Table #1

Inorganic Chemistry Research

Inorganic chemistry encompasses the entire periodic table with research from catalysis to alternative energy and from medicines to materials. Since inorganics are key today to environmental, energy, and nanomaterial research and the chemical industry, inorganic chemists find themselves at the forefront of research to identify the relationship between electronic structure and function: the fundamental issue of understanding properties at the molecular level.

Liquid-Crystal-2UMaine inorganic chemists are designing ways to detect mercury, copper and other contaminants in the environment, studying the bioinorganic chemistry of disulfides and thiolates with metals such as zinc and gold, investigating alternative energy, synthesizing liquid crystalline metal compounds, and probing the photophysical properties of gold and silver dicyanide compounds doped with alkali and lanthanide metals. These research projects span a wide array of instrumental techniques, calculations, and synthesis. We invite you to learn more about these projects from the faculty pages below.
