Beyzavi Group

About Us



The research in Beyzavi Group at the University of Arkansas involves the synthesis and study of new transition metal-based catalysts and materials for applications in energy sustainability, small molecule activation, biomedical imaging, e.g. Positron Emission Tomography and cancer therapy, e.g. Photodynamic Therapy. Our goal is the creative use of nature-inspired cooperative interactions to achieve new modes of reactivity.


Our research has been highlighted in KNWA TV Channel, FOX24 TV Channel, and University of Arkansas News, Fulbright REVIEWThe Arkansas Traveler Newspaper, University of Arkansas NewsWire, University of Arkansas NewsWire, Arkansas Democrat Gazette, and UA Notebook.
