R. Tom BAKER

Biography

Baker’s focus is on application of catalysis science to development of efficient energy applications. Collaborative projects include amine-boranes for chemical hydrogen storage, metal-catalyzed lignocellulose disassembly and surface-supported molecular complexes for tandem catalysis. Studies in fundamental transition metal organofluorine chemistry look at ‘greener’ methods for preparing technologically valuable fluorochemicals and –polymers.
