Stephen Lee


Olin Chemistry Research Wing, Room 160B

Educational Background

  • PhD, University of Chicago
  • BA, Yale University


Synthesis, structure and electronic structure of extended solids


  • Chemistry and Chemical Biology

Graduate Fields

  • Chemistry and Chemical Biology


  • Porous Organic Coordination Solids: Developing stronger porous solids in which all the host porous bonds are covalent in character
  • Introduce cross-linkable guests (such as di-isocyanides or disilyltriflates) which will react with these nucleophilic groups leading to a fully covalent organic porous solid
  • Long range order in intermetallic phases: Examine noble metal alloys where unit cell dimensions range from just a few, to almost 104 Å
