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, catalysisorganometallic 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.
