Research from the Whited Lab was recently featured in a special ACS Select Virtual Issue of Organometallics: “Undergraduate Research: Contributions to Organometallic Chemistry”
Matt and co-PI Gordana Dukovic (University of Colorado – Boulder) organized the 2018 NSF-CHE Early Career Investigator workshop in Alexandria, VA. The workshop brought together 100 junior faculty from a broad range of institutions and sub-fields of research with established investigators and numerous NSF staff to discuss strategies for crafting research ideas, planning educational and outreach activities, and assessing and evaluating project aims. Materials generated at the workshop are shared at go.carleton.edu/nsf2018/materials. Thanks to our speakers and all of NSF for supporting this important effort!
Several representatives from the Whited group will showcase recent results at the Spring 2018 ACS National Meeting in New Orleans. Check out their awesome work if you are in town for the meeting!
- Peterson, P. O.; Donnell, T. M.; Whited, M. T. “CO2 Bond Scission via a [P2Si]Rh Silylene Intermediate” INOR-246.
- Zhang, J.; Foley, B. J.; Bhuvanesh, N.; Whited, M. T.; Ozerov, O. V. “Synthesis & Reactivity of Novel Silyl/Silylene Pincer Cobalt Complexes” INOR-890.
- Ma, S.; Zhang, J.; Whited, M. T.; Janzen, D. E. “Synthesis, Characterization and Reactivity of Pincer-Type Bis(Phosphine)/Silylene [P2Si]Ru Complexes” INOR-891 and SciMix
Matt has published a new paper in Polyhedron with collaborators from USC addressing the role of isomerism in luminescent properties of cyclometalated iridium complexes relevant to organic LEDs.
Matt has received a grant from NSF ($70k) with co-PI Gordana Dukovic (CU-Boulder) to organize the 2018 NSF CHE Early Career Investigator Workshop in Alexandria, VA. Please pass along the word to early-career chemists who could benefit from a workshop on proposal preparation. Further details can be found at the workshop website.
