Conrad Goodwin

Inorganic and Organometallic Chemistry

Me, 2021

I'm Conrad, and I work at Los Alamos National Lab, in the Inorganic Isotope and Actinide Chemistry group, a part of the Chemistry Division (C-IIAC for short). I'm working to further our understanding of the f-block elements, and in particular the non-aqueous chemistry of trans-uranic elements (Np, Pu and beyond) with Dr Andrew Gaunt.

My interests include fundamental inorganic/organometallic synthetic methodology (solid-state and solution chemistry), understanding novel metal coordination geometries and unusual oxidation states, and investigating the link between metal coordination environments and electronic structure properties, in particular metal-ligand covalency and multiple bonding interactions.

I work with a range of national and international multidisciplinary collaborators to facilitate the characterisation of new complexes, and to elucidate electronic structures. Techniques used include SQUID magnetometry, EPR spectroscopy, UV-vis-NIR spectroscopy as well as advanced computational methodologies.
