Texas A&M Assistant Professor of Chemistry, David Powers, will present on Development of High-Valent Aerobic Oxidation Catalysis at the Department of Chemistry's weekly seminar series

About Professor Powers

Catalysis lies at the heart of many unmet chemical challenges. Research efforts in the Powers group focus on development of new catalytic chemistry to impact both chemical synthesis as well as chemical storage of solar energy. Projects span organic, organometallic, and inorganic chemistries and rely on the tools of modern synthetic chemistry and spectroscopy, as well as advanced characterization techniques supported at synchrotron X-ray sources. Representative research interests include: shape-selective catalysis, solar energy storage in organic solar-thermal flow batteries, and aerobic oxidation chemistry for C–H functionalization reactions.
