My students explore the coordination chemistry of sulfur containing ligands (such as thioethers or thioureas) to cobalt(III). These projects are a blend of a variety of chemistry disciplines. Students often prepare the organic molecule we want to attach to cobalt, the appropriate cobalt precursor, purify the resulting complexes, and then characterize them by UV-visible and NMR spectroscopies.
