Gregory Scott Girolami
|Alma mater||University of Texas at Austin, University of California at Berkeley|
|Institutions||University of Illinois at Urbana���Champaign|
|Notable students||Cheon Jinwoo|
Education and career
Girolami is currently the William H. and Janet G. Lycan Professor and Head of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
In 1989 Girolami and Morse showed that [Zr(CH
was trigonal prismatic as indicated by X-ray crystallography. They accurately predicted that other d0 ML6 species such as [Nb(CH
, and W(CH3)6 would also prove to be trigonal prismatic.
