Kenneth N. Raymond Lecture: Ken Raymond's Broad Influence on the Development of Metallacrowns

Seminar: Inorganic Chemistry | May 5 | 4-5 p.m. |  Pitzer Auditorium, 120 Latimer Hall

 Prof. Vincent Pecoraro, Department of Chemistry, University of Michigan

 College of Chemistry

In 1988, Ken Raymond and I had a conversation on coordination chemistry at a Gordon Conference. A consequence of this discussion was the preparation of the first report of the metallamacrocyclic class now known as metallacrowns. These molecules began as simple analogues of crown ethers that substituted the methylene carbons of these molecules with heteroatoms, typically N and a transition...   More >
