Other Projects in the McLauchlan Research Laboratory​

The Tris-Imidizolyl Ligand 2Me-TIC Inorg. Chim. Acta, 2007

​Although the primary focus of our laboratory involves vanadium chemistry, we are involved in several other research projects, all under the umbrella of “coordination chemistry”.

Tris His Enzyme Models​

We have made a number of complexes with tris-imidazolyl ligands involving cobalt, nickel, copper, and zinc to model histidine-containing metalloproteins.


In collaboration with Dr. Al Herlinger at Loyola-Chicago, we have been investigating the X-ray crystal structures of bisphosphonates and bis-phosphonic esters that are synthesized in his laboratory. We have been examining the structural role of even and odd alkyl chain liner lengths.​
