About the Seminar:  Alkenes are ubiquitous building blocks in synthetic chemistry that are leveraged in difunctionalization strategies to append multiple groups in one step. However, methods to achieve this typically require specialized reagents, directing groups, and/or transition-metal catalysts for reactivity and reliable selectivity. Recent work has shown 1,3-alkene difunctionalization via charge relocation. Key to this […]

11/7/23 at 4:00pm in Chemistry A101

Abstract: A key problem literally since the discovery of catalysis itself is the question of “what’s the actual, true catalyst?”. More specifically, distinguishing homogeneous catalysis from nanoparticle heterogeneous catalysis has proven to be both a critical, as well as challenging, issue in a range of organic reactions over the ≥25 years. Post setting up the […]

Abstract: Spectroscopy has the potential to reveal the structure and dynamics of complex materials, ranging from chromophores in solution to molecular aggregates and nanomaterial heterostructures. Yet, disentangling spectral signals and extracting an intuitive picture of how excitations form, move, and exchange energy is one of the deepest and most persistent challenges of physical chemistry.
