Selective incorporation of valuable building blocks into feedstock chemicals is a very important, albeit often times difficult challenge. We plan to develop catalysts; materials to efficiently convert feedstock chemicals into ones with valuable functionality. The catalysts developed by the
current project will incorporate two traditional reactive sites as a means to enhance activity and selectivity of our selected transformations. Through various techniques we plan to interrogate the properties of our developed systems in order to inform decisions about second generation
materials with enhanced activity over their predecessors. This project will result in a selection of new materials for the efficient conversion of feedstock chemicals into value added products.
