Inorganic Chemistry

Inorganic Chemistry covers the synthesis and properties of compounds across the entire periodic table. This includes discrete coordination and organometallic compounds as well as nanoscale minerals. Eighteen faculty research groups at CUNY are studying various aspects of inorganic chemistry. This includes its application in nanoscience, its importance in biological systems, its role in catalysis, and its use in clinical radiochemistry.
