Research Interests: Inorganic and organometallic syntheses, chalcogenides, bio-mimetic model complexes, coordination chemistry, chemical education, X-ray crystallography, student-response devices/clickers, NMR spectroscopy, and air-sensitive manipulations.
Currently, the McLauchlan Group research interests lie with vanadium coordination chemistry, with one conceived project focused on materials and catalysis and another involving bio-mimetic activity of V complexes. These topics have been chosen with student interests and education in mind in that they each expose students to a variety of synthetic and characterization techniques while pursuing some intriguing chemical problems.
