Welcome to the Malapit Group
synthesis | catalysis | electrochemistry | organometallic chemistry
for reaction discovery and sustainable energy storage
The Malapit lab is Northwestern's newest synthetic chemistry research group.
We utilize a multidisciplinary approach using the concepts of organic synthesis, catalysis, organometallic chemistry, and electrochemistry towards the discovery of new reactions and sustainable catalytic transformations,
and the development of novel molecules for next-generation energy storage technology.
