Work in the Arnold group in the field of catalysis is directed towards engineering of new ligands to support homogeneous catalysis in transition metal and lanthanide element complexes. We are especially interested in building new nitrogen donor ligands to stabilize reactive metal centers and are currently focusing our attention on ligands derived from bis(amines), triazacyclononanes, and functionalized imines. Complexes derived from these, and other related ligands are employed to carry out catalytic transformations that currently center on polymerization of a-olefins, lactide polymerization, and enantioselective catalysis.
