Supersonic Jet ExpansionStructure and Reactivity of Catalytic Intermediates

In our Air Force Office of Scientific Research funded line of research, we are developing new methodologies to capture catalytic intermediates in the oxidation of H2O and the reduction of CO2 to reveal the actual chemical structures that contribute to these reactions...

 


 

Cryogenic Electrospray IonizationEvaluating Chemical Models in the Temperature-controlled Cluster Regime

Our DOE-supported program extends our experimental and theoretical methods exploiting the unique properties of isolated cluster ions in order to quantify the molecular-level interactions that underlie complex...

 


 

Supersonic Jet ExpansionCryogenic Ion Spectroscopy of Non-Covalent Interactions

In our National Science Foundation-funded program, we use the strong spectral response of hydrogen bonds (H-bonds) observed in vibrational spectroscopy as a powerful structural probe for molecular assemblies tethered by multidentate linkages...

 


  

Supersonic Jet ExpansionUnderstanding the Molecular Origins of Spectral Features displayed by Ions under Restricted Hydration or at the Air-Water Interface

We are part of a multi-university, NSF-funded NSF Center for Aerosol Impacts on Climate and the Environment (CAICE), allowing us to combine our                                          experience in small water and salt clusters with a multidiscplinary team ...
