Eric Bloch is an assistant professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Delaware. Research in his group focuses on the design, synthesis, and characterization of novel porous materials for applications related to energy, the environment, and human health. The Bloch Group is particularly focused on the realization of new hybrid inorganic/organic molecular adsorbents for the storage of small molecules. Dr. Bloch Received his PhD in Inorganic Chemistry from the University of California-Berkeley in 2014 working for Prof. Jeffrey R. Long in the area of metal-organic frameworks for gas separations and catalysis. Prior to arriving at the University of Delaware, Bloch completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the labs of Prof. Daniel Nocera at Harvard University focusing on small molecule activation with bimetallic transition metal complexes.
