The Olivier 

Research Group

An Entirely New Class

At the intersection of materials science, synthetic chemistry, and physical chemistry, the Olivier research program aims to create entirely new classes of structure-function optimized electronic materials that feature non-covalent superstructures built using neoteric supramolecular tools. 

Our Researchers

Meet the Team


This course will provide an introduction to the design, synthesis, and electronic properties of organic chromophores and their utilization as semiconducting materials. Electronic processes taking place in solid-state assemblies as well as optoelectronic applications are explored.

This is the second course in a three course sequence designed to meet the needs of Life Science students interested in pursuing professional education in the health sciences. Topics to be covered in this course include: electronic atomic structure, basic quantum mechanics, molecular geometry, identification of organic molecules, and interpretation of chemical structures via spectroscopic methods.

This course is intended to equip students with in-depth knowledge on functional group transformations and reaction mechanisms.  Strong emphasize is placed on product synthesis and thought processes to design and execute efficient synthesis route.  In addition, part of this class is dedicated to introduce students to characterization methods of organic compounds -Infrared spectroscopy, Mass spectrometry, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, and UV-Vis spectroscopy- that are routinely performed in synthetic laboratory.
