Daryle H. Busch, Roy A. Roberts Distinguished Professor of Chemistry and Deputy Director, Center for Environmentally Beneficial CatalysisResearch Interests:
Green inorganic chemistry: transition metal coordination chemistry, bioinorganic chemistry focused on dioxygen, its reduction products and their interaction with metal complexes, environmentally benign oxidation catalysis by transition metal compounds, and supramolecular chemistry, especially new materials derived from advanced molecular topologies. Professor Busch's work is concerned with the design, synthesis, characterization and exploitation of coordination compounds, ranging from transition metal derivatives to purely organic complexes. Further the design, synthesis, and potential uses of the new chemistry are all directed at positive contributions to the global environment.
EducationPh.D., 1954, University of Illinois; Guggenheim Fellow 1981-1982.
