Project Title: 
Catalysis, Molecular Recognition, and Weakly Coordinating Cations

This group is carrying out electronic structure computations on a variety of problems but focuses on small molecule metal-free organic catalysts, earth-abundant non-toxic metal containing catalysts, and weakly coordinating cations. Mechanisms, new catalyst structures, and potential weakly coordinating cations will be probed to facilitate the development of practical reagents. This will be accomplished by carrying out extensive computations on substrates of interest, reaction transition state structures, and a variety of related species.
