Whited Publishes Paper on Chemistry15 October 2018
Matt Whited, Associate Professor of Chemistry, published a paper in Organometallics with Jim Zhang ’18 entitled, “Synthesis and Reactivity of Pincer-Type Cobalt Silyl and Silylene Complexes.” The paper represents the first fruits of a collaboration with the Ozerov group at Texas A&M University and is an exciting example of the first-ever chemical compound featuring a cobalt-silicon double bond. These fundamental advances have laid the groundwork for ongoing studies into how abundant and sustainable metals like cobalt can be coaxed into transforming carbon dioxide and other pollutants into useful products.
