Currently Dr Rosenberg serves as the undergraduate advisor for incoming chemistry majors and for Chemistry Majors and Biochemistry Majors.
Dr Rosenberg is the Director of the "Hydrogen and the Environment ," project on the 2007-2010 NSF-EpSCoR Grant
He is also the co-director of the Center for Advanced Supramolecular and Nano-Science )(CASANS).
Currently, vice Chair of the Separation Science Subdivision, of the American Chemical Society
Edward Rosenberg came to UM in August of 1993 from California State University, Northridge. He earned his Ph.D. from Cornell University in 1970 under the supervision of Professor J.J. Zuckerman. He carried out postdoctoral research under the directorship of Dr. E.W. Randall at Queen Mary College of the University of London and at the California Institute of Technology under the directorship of Professor J.D. Roberts. He has been Visiting Scientist at the University of Turin in Italy since 1974. Edward Rosenberg is an inorganic chemist with strong interests in organometallic compounds with biological activity and in the development of advanced materials for metal ion separations and recovery from acid mine leaches and drainages and industrial waste streams. He teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in inorganic and organometallic chemistry. He also teaches field oriented course entitled "Industrial Chemistry and its Impact on Society.

Field Of Study:
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance
There are three current areas of research in the Rosenberg group. The first involves the design and development of new silica polyamine composite materials for applications in the mining industry and in metal ion remediation of industrial and acid mine drainage waste streams. This research involves synthesis, spectroscopic characterization and applications testing of new materials designed to be selective for a given metal or group of metal cations and anions. This new technology is currently the basis for a new company, Purity Systems Inc. The applications of these composite materials is constantly expanding into new environmental areas, viral capture and green chemical catalysis.
The second area of research involves the development of new synthetic methods for functionalizing biologically important molecules such as DNA and proteins using the unusual properties of trinuclear metal clusters. This research involves organic and organometallic synthesis, extensive use of nuclear and electron magnetic resonance spectroscopies and the use of labeling experiments to understand reaction mechanism. The new organometallic Bio-Markers produced are screened for biological activity through collaborations with the industry. The aim of this research is to develop highly selective binding of metal clusters to bio macromolecules that can directly visualized by electron microscopy and used to gain phase information from X-ray diffraction experiments.
Recently we have embarked on a new project involving the development of lifetime tunable metal based probes for studying the dynamics of biomacromolecules with time resolved, single molecule flourescence techniques. This work is being conducted in collaboration with Professor Ross of the UM Chemistry Department and research groups in the Piedmont Region of Italy.
Professor Rosenberg's research is currently supported by Halcyon Molecular and the National Science Foundation.
