As inorganic chemists we have at our disposal all of the elements of the periodic table. We take advantage of this freedom in our efforts to design, synthesize, and explore the reactivity of inorganic and organometallic complexes with the goals of discovering novel catalytic and stoichiometric chemical transformations.

Students in my group are exposed to a wide array of topics in organometallic and inorganic. Design and synthesis of fundamentally interesting, catalytically active and application oriented compounds form the central effort of our research program. We employ a variety of spectroscopic techniques (e.g.  multinuclear NMR), thermal analysis and diffractometry in order to characterize the materials we prepare.

The  Richeson lab committed to an environment of mutual respect and upholds the highest standard of ethical and professional behavior that must be free of harassment and discrimination. All lab members are expected to abide by policies on discrimination and harassment, which you can (and must) read about  here: https://www.uottawa.ca/respect/en
