  • processes of hydroxylation and halogenation
    The Goldberg group shows the first structural evidence of a nonheme FeIII(OH)(Cl) complex, relevant to the intermediate of nonheme halogenases. They also investigated the hydroxylation versus halogenation reactivity of this complex with tertiary carbon radicals.

Inorganic Chemistry at JHU is at the forefront of a wide range of research, including the study of coordination chemistry, bioinorganic chemistry, small molecule activation, enzyme mechanisms utilizing biological radicals, catalysis, and solid state and nanostructured functional materials. Key findings in these areas are leading to new understanding in biological and environmental processes and the development of novel materials with controlled properties for superconductors, optoelectronics, energy storage, and energy conversion.
