Research Interests

New Materials through Catalysis

In the Borden Group, we are eager to design methods that will make plastic production more sustainable. By harnessing the energy in visible light, we design mild methods to form new bonds and deliver valuable materials.

Students in the Borden group will have the opportunity to learn both organic and polymer synthesis and characterization skills. Interested students can explore how to use computational tools to help understand chemical reactivity and expedite methodology development.
