Research in Inorganic Chemistry at Penn State focuses on current problems in a broad range of topical areas: homogeneous catalysis, inorganic polymer chemistry, metalloenzyme structure and function, solid state structure and reactivity, and inorganic nanomaterials. Penn State has had historically had nationally leading programs in inorganic polymer chemistry and organometallic chemistry. Through entities such as the Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences, the Materials Research Institute, and the Center for Nanoscale Science, Penn State links traditional areas of research to offer unique programs in bioinorganic and inorganic materials chemistry.
