research overview

  • Professor Pierpont is studying the structural, electrochemical, magnetic, and photochemical properties of transition metal complexes that contain organic ligands bearing quinone functionalities. Current projects under investigation include the formation and reactivity of catecholate complexes containing strong multiple M-M bonds, studies on the coordination chemistry of dopamine and the potential involvement of iron-dopamine coordination complexes in Parkinson’s disease, and the development of a new iron electrocatalyst for water oxidation.
