Sidney E. Creutz

Sid was an MIT undergraduate and chemistry major. His research project in the Cummins group was a synthetic exploration of a niobium complex supported by a tris-enolate phosphane ligand platform. Sid has found that this unusual ligand platform can act as a gold or rhodium receptor. Accordingly, Sid concerned himself with elucidating the electronic and reactivity effects at niobium that result from tuning and axial ligand exchange at the gold binding site. Upon graduating from MIT in Spring of 2010, Sid stayed for the summer of that year to continue with his research project prior to starting chemistry graduate studies at Caltech.
