The Park group will drive a research direction toward discovery of new reactivity to molecules in catalysis, which will be guided on the basis of synthetic and mechanistic organometallic chemistry. The Park group’s research goal is to develop efficient catalytic systems for selective transformations of naturally abundant, but inert molecules including simple (hetero)aromatics, alkanes, alkenes, and CO2 to provide valuable synthetic feedstocks.
The Park group is actively recruiting talented and enthusiastic graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. If interested, please send CV to Prof. Park via email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
