Spectroscopy, Bonding and Electronic Structure in Base Metal Chemistry

res1Spectroscopic studies of inorganic, organometallic and materials systems are a core element of research studies involving transition metals. Due to the extensive spectroscopic capabilities and expertise in the Neidig group, especially pertaining to paramagnetic transition metal systems, we have been widely involved in collaborative studies with groups in the U.S. and around the world in support of research studies in these areas.
