Inorganic chemistry research at McMaster encompasses a wide range of molecular and materials research. Some research groups study the synthesis and characterization of unique high oxidation-state fluorides and noble-gas compounds, while others focus on ligand design and the syntheses of new organometallic catalysts. We study the development of organometallic precursors and reactions for thin film deposition, new solid state materials for thermoelectric and magnetocaloric applications. Other areas of exploration include supramolecular structures assembled using heavy main-group element interactions, radiolabeled compounds for medical imaging and treatment, and development and study of new electric vehicle battery and fuel cell materials. Our research approach blends applied and exploratory goals, in combination with in-depth understanding derived from detailed structural, bonding, computational and reactivity studies.
