Welcome to the Katz Group

Our goal is to better understand chemical reactivity by transferring the most essential features of functional group organization found in biological systems to synthetic heterogeneous platforms for catalysis and adsorption. We synthesize nanoscale interfaces consisting of organic and inorganic components as tools for the design of functional materials, using molecular building blocks and templating strategies.
