Using Raman Spectroscopy to Probe the Internal Structure and Excitonic Properties of Light-Harvesting Aggregates of Tetra(sulfonatophenyl)porphyrin
Borrowing ideas from light-harvesting aggregates in nature for use in photovoltaics or solar fuels to improve light collection and solar energy efficiency is an attractive prospect. However an incomplete understanding of ...
Pressure-induced physical and chemical changes of non-conventional energetic materials: Nitrate, perchlorate and peroxide chemistries at high pressure and high temperature
Non-conventional explosives are widely used in terrorist activities, thus imposing a threat to homeland security. The simple combination of oxidizers with fuels is one popular category. Our goal is to explore and understand ...
The Application of Electrospray Mass Spectrometry to Solution Speciation: An Integrated Experimental and Computational Approach
Electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) is a promising technique for the study of metal:ligand solution speciation. While ESI-MS is frequently used qualitatively with some success, quantitative use of the technique ...
CHEMICAL AND PHYSICAL TRANSFORMATIONS OF SIMPLE MOLECULAR SYSTEMS UNDER EXTREME PRESSURES AND TEMPERATURES
Under sufficient compression molecules behave in exotic ways leading to interesting solid state transformations such as disorder-order transitions, polymerization/ionization, or path dependent metastable phases. These ...
