Dr. Sendlinger was trained as a synthetic inorganic chemist and has used computational chemistry to probe the electronic structure of new materials he and others have synthesized. His educational interests include the transformational use of computational science in the classroom. Research interests include synthesis and characterization of main group and transition metal complexes with perfluorinated acetylacetonate ligands and both computational and experimental nuclear magnetic resonance spectra (proton, carbon-13 and fluorine-19) of these compounds.


PhD Cornell University 1990
