Welcome to the Searles Group website! We are located in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Florida.

Our research is focused on the utilization and efficient conversion of globally abundant substrates, such as CO2, N2, CH4, natural/shale gas components and biofuels, which are related to energy and environmental concerns. The research focuses on the development of novel inorganic materials and molecules spanning the fields of both heterogeneous and homogeneous catalysis.
