If you have a question about this talk, please contact Chloe Barker.

My research group is invested in the discovery of phosphorus-based catalysts that make and break bonds via two-electron changes in formal oxidation state. By enforcing non-VSEPR geometries on P(III) compounds, we attempt to create structural and electronic conditions that facilitate cycling in the P(III)⇌P(V) redox couple. This approach has resulted in the development of diverse atom transfer and bond activation methods catalyzed by inexpensive, nonmetal phosphorus compounds. The synthetic and mechanistic aspects of these reactions and their connection to other metal-based catalytic methods will be described.
