- Our research is concerned with the chemistry of reactive main group allotropes, alloys, and radicals, with a special focus on the discovery of new structures, bonding modes, and reactivities. We are currently studying the ability of electron-deficient carbenes to serve as stabilizing ligands to reactive phosphorus, arsenic, antimony, silicon, and boron-containing species.
- In addition to synthesis, which lies at the heart of all of our research projects, our research also involves extensive use of modern characterization techniques including multinuclear NMR and EPR spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, electrochemistry and computational methods (DFT, NBO, AIM).
If you are interested in our research please contact Dr. Hudnall! We are currently accepting highly motivated undergraduate and graduate students, as well as visiting scientists, exchange students, and local high school students.
