Kenneth D. Karlin

KarlinKennethKENNETH D. KARLIN, the Ira Remsen Professor of Chemistry, joined the Hopkins faculty in 1990. He is editor of the annual review series Progress in Inorganic Chemistry and serves on the editorial boards of several other scientific journals. Dr. Karlin works in inorganic and bio-inorganic chemistry, and he has edited three monographs on copper inorganic and bio-inorganic chemistry. His research focuses on synthetic models for copper- and iron-containing metalloproteins, in particular those interacting with molecular oxygen or nitric oxide. Complementary interests include metal-catalyzed oxidation of organics, electron transfer, and reduction of nitrogen oxides, the last having important biological and environmental impact. In 2009, Dr. Karlin was honored by the American Chemical Society with the F. Albert Cotton Award in Synthetic Inorganic Chemistry.
