Congratulations to Shelby Hooe, who received the ACS Women Chemists Travel Award sponsored by Eli Lilly and Co. to support her attendance of the 260th ACS National Meeting in Philaelphia, PA!
Isobel Thomas, a visiting Master's student from the University of Bath, has joined the group for the year. Welcome Isobel!
Charles attended and gave a talk at the 2019 GRC on Organometallic Chemistry at Salve Regina University, RI on "First-Row Transition Metal Complexes for the Electrocatalytic Reduction of CO2 and O2".
Thanks to Al Barney (Strem Chemical) and Mitch Smith (Michigan State University) for organizing a wonderful conference!
Charles attends the 23rd Annual ACS GCANDE Conference in Reston, VA to give a talk on 'Developing Molecular Electrocatalysts and Scalable Systems for Renewable Fuels'.
The talk was for a session on CATALYSIS FOR CO2 CONVERSION organized by Gonghu Li, University of New Hampshire, and Jonathan Rochford, University of Massachusetts Boston.
Thanks Gonghu and Jonathan!
Charles attended the 2019 Cyclic Voltammetry International School at the Université Paris Diderot (soon to be the Université de Paris) from April 8-12. It was a wonderful week of lectures and practicals! Good luck to all the participants in the future!
Charles attended Pittcon 2019 in Philadelphia, PA to preside over and speak in an organized session on the 'Molecular Catalysis of Carbon Dioxide Reduction from Renewable Energy'. Other spearkers included Jenny Yang (UC Irvine), Marc Robert (Paris Diderot), Aaron Appel (PNNL), and Gerry Manbeck (Brookhaven). Thanks to all the speakers!
Charles and CC attended the 2019 GRC on Inorganic Reaction Mechanisms in Galveston, TX to present posters. Charles was also selected for a poster talk! Thanks to Tim Warren and Jen Love for a wonderful conference!

Thanks for a fun semester!
Welcome to new graduate student lab members Jillian, Connor and Tie!
Charles attended the 43rd International Conference on Coordination Chemistry in Sendai, Japan as an Invited Speaker in a session he co-organized with Prof. Hitoshi Ishida from Kitasato University.
Another excllent conference from 07/08 to 07/13 organized by Chair Christine Thomas and Vice Chair Al Barney. Seafood and science!
Our collaboration with the Matson Group (and Neidig!) has been accepted to Chemical Science! Congratulations to Asa and everyone else involved. Click through if you're interested in characterization of a molecular cluster with bound NO in five different oxidation states.
Asa, Shelby, and Charlie attended the 3rd International Conference on Proton-Coupled Electron Transfer in Blowing Rock, NC (June 10-14). All presented posters and Charles gave a talk entitlted "PCET Reactions of Metal Complexes with Proton-Responsive Ligands in Small Molecule Activation".
Many thanks to Jillian Dempsey and all the other organizers for a wonderful conference!!!
Lauren's paper, Electrochemical Reduction of Carbon Dioxide with a Molecular Polypyridyl Nickel Complex, has been published in Sustainable Energy & Fuels. Thanks to Arnie Rheingold for help with the single crystal X-ray diffraction studies!
In collaboration with the Harman Lab, we have published a paper entitled "Reversible Modulation of the Redox Characteristics of Acid-Sensitive Molybdenum and Tungsten Scorpionate Complexes" in Dalton Transactions. Congratulations to everyone on a productive collaboration! IR-SEC, DFT, thermochemical cycles and more!
A dedicated workstation for large-scale electrolysis experiments has been installed in the lab! A BIologic VSP Bipotentiostat with two 20A/20V boosters ("Indra") is co-located with a dedicated Agilent 7890B GC ("Airavata") for testing and scaling paired electrolysis reactions.
Dr. Changcheng 'CC' Jiang has joined the group as a postdoctoral researcher. He completed his graduate work under the supervision of Malcolm Chisolm and Claudia Turro at The Ohio State University. Welcome CC!
Charles will be speaking at the Solar Energy Research Center Conference in Charlotte, NC on November 9th, 2017. Thanks to Alex Miller and Jillian Dempsey for organizing!
Welcome to summer researchers Lauren and Brittany! Brittany is a rising 4th year at UVA who is continuing research from the past year and Lauren is an incoming graduate student.
