Dr. Reed, in collaboration with Prof. Hoffman, is interested in investigating the effects that reaction media and microwave irradiation have on the structure and catalytic properties of metal-organic frameworks. Also of interest in the Reed lab, in collaboration with the Dr. Garner at the University of the Incarnate Word, are coordination complexes that can be used as antimicrobial agents. Her lab is currently investigating the rapid synthesis of these complexes using the laboratory microwave and elucidating, via x-ray crystallography, how the structures affect the toxicity of these molecules.
