Valeria Kleiman, Associate Professor of Chemistry at the University of Florida, presents “Polynuclear Ru-based Metal Complexes for Energy and Electron Transfer” on Friday, October 11, 2019 at 3:30 p.m. in Anderson Hall 329.

The harvesting and transduction of the solar energy can be achieved by absorption of multiple photons (antenna effect) followed by electron transfer processes that lead to charge separation creating reduction/oxidation equivalents. An approach to provide antennae and/ or catalytic properties is the use of metal-organic supramolecular systems, where the ligands provide vast tunability of the electronic and structural properties.  We are embarked on ultrafast time-resolved studies to understand the first steps in photoinduced processes of Ru-based metal light-harvester through the lens of the coordination chemistry.
