Christopher Masi


Professor Masi joined the WSU faculty in the Fall of 2002 after teaching at Tulane University in New Orleans for 5 years. Outside of teaching General Chemistry and Organic Chemistry, Professor Masi is interested in organometallic chemistry, more specifically, the activation of carbon dioxide by organometallic complexes.  He recently co-authored "Complexes formed from reactions of Re(CO)3(H2O)3+ with amines used for biological buffering", which appeared in the Journal of Organometallic Chemistry in March 2012.
