10/22/19 - 9:45 AM to 11:00 AM
Department Seminar: Professor Adam S. Veige
Researchers in Professor Veige's group primarily interested in the design, synthesis, isolation, and characterization of novel inorganic molecules. Their research efforts are concentrated towards building new complexes that either model or affect new small molecule transformations relevant to the industrial sector. They undertake detailed mechanistic studies in order to uncover subtle details of catalytic processes in hopes of building upon or challenging current models of molecular structure, periodic trends, reactivity, and bonding.
Professor Veige earned his bachelor's degree from the University of Western Ontario, and his doctorate from Cornell University. He was a post-doctoral researcher at the Massachusetts of Technology. He joined the faculty at the University of Florida in 2004, and currently is a Research Foundation Professor and director of the Center for Catalysis.
