Our group engages heavily in designing, synthesizing and characterizing luminescent and photoactive transition metal complex chromophores for diverse applications (photocatalysis, sensing, upconversion, light-emitting electrochemical cells, dye-sensitized solar cells) preferably using Earth-abundant sustainable elements, unusual oxidation states, fundamentals of electron/proton transfer reactions, photosynthesis and bioinorganic/biomimetic chemistry.
This movie shows a large-amplitude Jahn-Teller motion after light excitation of a chromium(III) complex.
