Dr. Daugulis GroupWe have projects for organic, inorganic, and polymer incoming students, with most of the group focusing on organic methodology.
Our main interests are as follows:
- Development of new organic methodology by applying organometallic chemistry to organic chemistry problems.
- Organometallic chemistry of palladium, copper, silver, gold, and cobalt.
- Late transition metal catalyzed olefin polymerization.
Students and postdoctoral associates in the group can choose the project they decide to pursue. Subsequently they have a large degree of freedom with respect to the direction of research. Group philosophy is that while scientific discussions are encouraged, ultimately each person has his/her own project or projects and is responsible for making the chemistry work. This allows students to learn problem-solving skills that are invaluable when entering the "real" world.
