T Andrew Mobley

Associate Professor

Research Professor Mobley's research interests involve the application of physical organic techniques to organometallic compounds. His current research involves the synthesis of transition metal stannylenes with particular interest in the synthesis of a novel class of these molecules in which the tin-transition metal bond shows evidence of multiple bond character. These molecules may show nucleophilic behavior at the tin atom as compared to previously made stannylenes which have an electrophilic tin atom. One of the primary techniques used in Professor Mobley's research is Nuclear Magnetic Resonance spectroscopy, which is an ongoing interest for him.
