The group has a new paper out in J. Am. Chem. Soc.. Big congratulations to the first-author, Matthew Lueckheide, and our collaborators (Dr. Mehmed Z. Ertem, Pawel Chimelniak, and Michael Michon) for an exciting study uncovering the synthesis, characterization, reactivity, and mechanism of formation of soluble rare-earth peroxides directly from air!
The Robinson group is a synthetic inorganic chemistry lab with research interests that lie at the intersection of inorganic, organic, and materials chemistries. The lab is especially interested in taking advantage of the unique properties of lanthanides and rare earth metals to enable new applications in green chemistry, energy storage, materials design, and catalysis.
