The McCusker Group

Our group is interested in the physical and photophysical properties of transition metal complexes. Our approach relies on a confluence of synthetic chemistry, a cornucopia of physical techniques ranging from magnetism to femtosecond time-resolved spectroscopy, and high-level theory. The simultaneous examination of chemical problems on all three of these fronts places us in a unique position to explore the physical chemistry of inorganic compounds.


Jim and Dani are off to the 2016 Inorganic Chemistry Gordon Research conference and seminar at the University of New England, Maine. Dani is presenting a poster on some recent results and Jim will be giving a talk on vibronic coherence.
