Redox Catalysis at the Nodes of Metal Organic Frameworks
The synthesis of complex molecules , such as those found in pharmaceuticals often requires the use of a catalyst to form parts of the desired molecule. The development of catalysts is an important area of research as it allows chemists to synthesize better drugs, polymers, and devices that people encounter in every day life . The proposed research describes a new class of catalysts to that are expected to enable the synthesis of important complex chemicals.
