Students in the Department of Chemistry at Purdue University benefit greatly from the availability of a wide range of courses related to inorganic chemistry, including core classes in main group and transition metal chemistry, group theory and spectroscopy, organometallic chemistry and catalysis, bioinorganic chemistry, and kinetics, as well as other areas of chemistry. The inorganic division seminar series ensures that graduate students are up to date with the latest advances across the broad spectrum of inorganic chemistry, an essential base of knowledge for today's job market. Inorganic chemistry, by definition, encompasses the entire periodic table. Examples of ongoing materials research include conducting polymer and self-assembled monolayer design. A research area in our group focuses on coordination compounds of the bioinspired macrocyclic biquinazoline ligand, Mabiq. We are  examining small molecule activation/production by the complexes, as well as their applications for photoredoxcatalysis. The wide diversity of classes reflect the broad range of specialties and research interests of our faculty. Our departmental Mellon Library of Chemistry is a valuable resource located within the Wetherill Chemistry Building, and subscribes to the vast majority of chemical journals available. We are interested in the development of ‘multi-cofactored’ complexes, as catalysts for multi-electron transformations. Mn cluster, with oxide and carboxylate ligation. The X-Ray Crystallography Facility in the Chemistry Department is state of the art and includes the latest charge coupled device (CCD) technology, allowing for rapid structure determinations. based on the very recent knowledge of the protein’s Mn4 structure.
