The Kim group at Brown University focuses on synthetic inorganic chemistry. We specialize in synthesizing discrete inorganic molecules and studying their reactions with small molecules like NO, O2, CO2, NO3–, H+, and others to better understand small molecule activation, sensing, and catalysis. One of our main goals is to uncover the fundamental chemical principles that govern how cells respond to changes in their redox environment. Additionally, we develop homogeneous catalysts to convert harmful environmental molecules into non-toxic or value-added products. To achieve our goals, we use biomimetic and bio-inspired approaches in our research. Please explore our website to learn more about what we do.

This is our new website migrated from our older homepage.  We are the same team with a new look.

We always look for enthusiastic students who want to join the team.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions!
