Research Summary
My interests focus on the chemistry of sigma electron-acceptor (Z-type) ligands. Ligands in transition metal complexes are generally classified as L­type, X­type, or Z­type. L­type ligands serve as two-electron donors for transition metals and X­type ligands typically are considered to donate one-electron to the central metal. In comparison, Z­type ligands accept electrons from transition metals through a sigma-bonding interaction. Although this type of ligands potentially has unique functions, Z­type ligands are much less well understood than L­ and X­type ligands and their functions are in early stages of investigation. We dedicate significant efforts to designing Z­type ligands for applications to develop a new catalytic process.
