The Teets group is an experimental physical inorganic group that focuses on molecular inorganic and organometallic compounds. Most of the efforts in our group involve the discovery of synthetic strategies to control and optimize the photophysical and photochemical properties of organometallic compounds, pursuing compounds with enhanced or unique features. In particular, we are targeting compounds with efficient phosphorescence in the extremes of the visible spectrum, i.e. deep blue and red, and also compounds which can luminesce in the near-infrared with high quantum yields. In related work, we are preparing complexes which are powerful photoreductants for application in photoredox catalysis. A separate project in our lab investigates the coordination chemistry of redox-active ligands with heavy transition metals, with a particular emphasis on the electrochemical and optical properties of these constructs.
