Dr. Nola Etkin researches the preparation of new types of metal-containing compounds that can be used as catalysts for industrial processes, such as olefin polymerization—the making of plastics. Her research targets specialty application plastics, including those that are strong or have high melting points. She is also interested in the synthesis of medicinally important compounds.
