Personal Summary

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.

Research Interests

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.Most recently we are utilizing these materials for uranium remediation in collaboration with the WItwatersrand University in South Africa. The company has recently been acquired by Johnson Matthey Ltd.  a multinational company with the resources to take this technology to a higher level of development.

The same polyamine composites are being developed as surfaces for the immobilization of phophorescent complexes for applicationa in metal sensing and phorinduced electron transfer.  In a related study we are immobilizing pincer complexes on these surfaces for use as heterogeneous analogs of this very useful and robust catlysts

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

Professor Rosenberg's research is currently supported by the National Science Foundation and by research contract from Porocel International, a Houston based catalyst regeneration company.
