Research Interests of David A. Shultz

Our research program involves molecular design and structure-property studies of open-shell molecules and molecular assemblies, with an emphasis on bis(semiquinone)s and their metal complexes. In particular, we are interested in:

The Research Experience

Students working in the group can gain experience in many or all of the following areas:

  • all types of chemical synthesis (organic, inorganic, organometallic),
  • spectroscopy (nuclear magnetic resonance, infrared, electron paramagnetic resonance , UV-Vis, etc.),
  • x-ray crystallography,
  • electrochemistry,
  • magnetometry,
  • molecular modeling,
  • computational chemistry,
  • surface chemistry,
  • materials chemistry.

We acknowledge and thank the National Science Foundation for continued support of our work.
