Dr. Lucas Freeman is a technology specialist with a Ph.D. in inorganic chemistry. His technical expertise spans the s-, d- and p-blocks of the periodic table, with scholarly contributions in the fields of materials science, small-molecule synthesis, carbon dioxide reduction, hydrogen storage, and others.
Prior to joining Foley Hoag, Lucas earned his Ph.D. at the University of Virginia in the laboratory of Prof. Robert Gilliard, Jr., authoring 12+ peer-reviewed publications along the way. His dissertation work focused on the organometallic chemistry of s-block elements supported by carbene ligands, with direct applications to energy-relevant redox processes and solid-state hydrogen storage. Lucas' undergraduate work at the College of Charleston was primarily focused on understanding the physical chemistry of organic polymers used in organic photovoltaic materials.
