"Vibrational predissociation spectroscopy of Ar-tagged, trisubstituted silyl cations" by Andrew F. DeBlase, et. al. is selected as an editors choice in Chem. Phys. Lett.
After a year of troubleshooting, our 7T Bruker ICR is functional once again, collecting high resolution spectra of electrosprayed organometallic catalysts and macromolecules.
Andrew DeBlase gives a hot topic talk at the Gordon Research Conference on Gaseous Ions in Galveston, TX: "A Bottom Up Approach to the Zundel Continuum: 3rd Order Anharmonic Treatment of Shared Proton Spectra"
Remarks by Professor Johnson featured in the February 25th edition of the C&E News article "Why SN2 Reactions Don't Work in Water"
Professor Johnson will be giving the plenary talk at the German Physical Society meeting in Hannover in March. We have recently added numerous experimental capabilities to the laboratory, including a new cryo-ESI source, two new Surelite EX pump lasers, and a visible laser for electronic spectroscopy interrogation. J. Robert Roscioli has taken a position at Aerodyne Research in Boston, MA.
Alexander Esser, a graduate student in Martina Havenith's laboratory at Ruhr-University Bochum, has begun a two month visit to our group to collaborate and further our characterization of cryogenic ions.
