Inorganic Chemistry


 

Inorganic chemistry research at Stony Brook University (SBU) includes synthetic and physical inorganic chemistry, organometallics, homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis, bioinorganic chemistry, coordination chemistry and inorganic materials chemistry.  Our wide range of research projects includes the synthesis and characterization of new inorganic compounds and materials with applications towards biochemistry mechanism elucidation, in-situ medical imaging, organometallic reaction mechanisms, radiochemistry, energy production, and energy storage.  Further, the preparation of composite materials consisting of a variety of individual materials and compounds with different properties to generate multi-functional composites is a growing and timely endeavor here at SBU.  Techniques available for inorganic research include: x-ray diffraction techniques (both at SBU and at Brookhaven National Laboratories (BNL)) for powder diffraction and single crystal structure determination; a suite of BNL x-ray techniques capable of cutting edge characterization of molecules and solids; powerful microscopy techniques applicable for in-situ elucidation of materials reactivity; a variety of electrochemical techniques for energy applications and the use of powerful computation techniques to work in collaboration with synthesis and application of new inorganic compounds and materials.

Physically, inorganic chemistry at SBU is centered at the Chemistry Building on the SBU campus; however, other easility accessed locations involving inorganic chemistry include the Advanced Energy Research and Technology Center (AERTC), also on the SBU campus, as well as the impressive research resources of BNL, a national Department of Energy (DOE) laboratory, including the Center for Functional Nanomaterials (CFN); the Interdisciplinary Science Building (ISB); and of course, the National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLSII); one of the brightest synchrotron light sources in the U.S.. This convenient (all within a thirty minute drive) collaborative arrangement makes research in inorganic chemistry at SBU well-positioned for the complex challenges of the twenty-first century!
