Teaching Philosophy

  • My objectives as a teacher are: (1) to facilitate learning in such a way that students find the material interesting and enjoyable and so are prompted to learn on their own; (2) to foster critical thinking and the development of problem solving skills; (3) to find ways to transmit effectively my enthusiasm and love of the sciences to students.
  • Scientific Research is an essential part of a science education that I believe can achieve these goals and that I encourage students to pursue. I like to set aside time for office hours or group meetings where students can seek out assistance or advice and discuss matters relating to course or research material.

Research Interests

My research is in the area of the design, synthesis and properties of ionic liquids (ILs). Ionic liquids are compounds that are expected to be high melting crystalline salts at room temperature but are actually liquids owing to the size mismatch of the anions and cations which frustrate packing into a crystal lattice. Current efforts to promote sustainable or green chemistry include the use of ionic liquids as alternative solvents that do not contribute to air pollution. They have potential applications as new electrolytes in batteries and as alternative media for chemical reactions. They have also been investigated for use in fuel cells, chromatography, as lubricants and as media for the storage and processing of radioactive waste. My research group has synthesized ionic liquids based on mono- and polycationic ammonium species bearing phosphate (PO43-), bis(oxalato)borate (BOB-), dialkylphosphate,  bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyl)amide [(CF3SO2)2N-] and other elaborated sulfonamide anions, and characterized them for their physical properties. We have also synthesized and characterized a series of phosphonium ionic liquids; synthesized and characterized binary mixtures of ionic liquids, ionic liquids incorporating branched alkyl substituents and ether substituents, as well as those containing symmetrical and asymmetrical dications. Some of our collaborative work involves synthesizing and characterizing ILs using microwave assisted techniques at Brookhaven National Laboratory (with collaborator James Wishart); examining their nanoscale structural layout and interactions with Dr. Edward Castner at Rutgers University and Dr. Claudio Margulis at the University of Iowa; and investigating the effect of Hydrogen Bonding on ionic liquid properties with Dr. Mark Johnson at Yale University.
