Wang Research Group
Welcome to the Wang research group. We are a group actively working at the interface of Bioinorganic Chemistry, Bio-inspired Catalysis and Renewable Energy and Sustainability. We apply strategies learned from natural metalloenzymes to develop the next generation of biomimetic and bio-inspired catalytic systems to carry out reactions of significant importance in metabolic transformation, synthesis, and energy industry. We employ combined methods, including organic and inorganic synthesis, spectroscopy, surface analysis, kinetics, electrochemistry, and computational calculation, to investigate our catalytic reactions. This interdisciplinary research theme provides comprehensive trainings for our graduate and undergraduate students, and excellent opportunities of establishing vigorous collaborations with research groups within and outside of the University of Montana.
