Welcome to the Ford Group!

Our research is concerned with three major topics:

  1. The photochemistry and photophysics of transition metal complexes and the design of photochemical pathways for the delivery of bioactive compounds to appropriate targets
  2. The bioinorganic chemistry of nitric oxide and other small molecule bioregulators
  3. Sustainable catalytic chemistry, especially of reactions relevant to biomass conversion

While these topics sound rather diverse, the common theme is our interest in reaction mechanisms and in applications of quantitative techniques to investigate these systems. For more information, check out ourĀ research section.
