  • Biography

    Professor Bitterwolf's research encompasses a broad area of organometallic chemistry ranging from the organic chemistry of functional groups on cyclopentadienyl metal compounds to the electrochemistry and photochemistry of reactions at the metals themselves. A major emphasis of the research program is the design and rational synthesis of new organometallic compounds with complex functionality, or compounds with two metal atoms held in very close proximity. Having prepared these new materials, the research then focuses on their chemistry, potential catalytic behavior or their further elaboration into pendant groups in polymers.
