Professor Barybin’s research program lies at the interface of inorganic, coordination, organic, and materials branches of chemistry. It includes development of organometallic and inorganic synthetic methodologies and studies of electron delocalization and transport in electron-rich organometallics. A major current effort of the Barybin team involves design of hybrid metal/organic ensembles incorporating the azulenic motif, an edge sharing combination of five-and seven-membered sp2-carbon rings.
