Research Areas - Inorganic & Organometallic
The inorganic chemistry research area of the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of California at Santa Barbara performs cutting-edge research that spans the entire inorganic disipline. Ongoing research encompasses inorganic and organometallic synthesis, inorganic materials, mesoporous materials, nanomaterials, bioinorganic chemistry, surface chemistry, catalysis, and magnetism. These topics lie at the heart of energy science, making our division the front line in our quest to build a new energy economy.
