Research Interests

The preparation of stable carbocations and their subsequent chemistry (e.g., structure, rearrangements, thermo-chemistry, photochemistry, etc.) is being studied. This work involves the extensive use of a number of other tools, including molecular orbital calculations.

Other interests involve the organometallic chemistry of transition metals, particularly in finding novel reactions of use in organic synthesis. This group is also interested in bitumen upgrading and characterization studies.
