Poster #104: Lydia Fries – Computational Methods for Modeling Catalyst Systems

Faculty mentor: Matthew Sigman

Metal complexes have proven to be a crucial part of catalysis. Many catalytic processes rely on expensive metals. Earth-abundant metals, such as Co(I) complexes have the potential to be used in catalysis. Understanding the mechanism by which new Co(I) complexes facilitate reactivity is a crucial part of broadening the potential applications for a catalytic system. We studied the oxidative addition (OA) mechanism for Co(I) catalysts using a combination of computational and experimental methods.
