I am currently (or have been) involved in teaching the following classes offered in the Dept. of Chemistry at UNC Charlotte:
- Principles of Chemistry (CHEM 1251)
- Inorganic Chemistry (CHEM 2125)
- Science, Technology and Society (LBST 2213)
- Advanced Inorganic Chemistry (CHEM 4121)
- Organometallic Chemistry (CHEM 6126)
Synthetic and structural inorganic, bioinorganic and organometallic chemistry, including: (i) poly(pyrazolyl)silane chemistry, (ii) coordination chemistry with multidentate sulfur-donor ligands, including polythioethers and poly(mercaptoimidazolyl)borates, (iii) synthesis of model compounds for the active sites in nickel hydrogenases, copper proteins and other sulfur-rich biomolecules, and (iv) microwave-assisted coordination chemistry.
