Research Highlights

The ethylene-forming enzyme (EFE) catalyzes the oxidative decarboxylation of 2OG to succinate and CO2 to generate a highly reactive iron...

The Zhang Group demonstrated that NaHS induces complete displacement of ligands from AuNPs. The model ligands include the aliphatic and aromatic...

Using gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) synthesized with deuterated citrate, the Zhang Group demonstrated that the surface of citrate-reduced AuNPs contains...

The Zhang Group investigated porphyrin assembly and disassembly with their newly developed Polarized Resonance Synchronous Spectroscopy (PRS2)...

Both photon absorption and scattering contribute to the photon extinction measured with UV-vis spectrophotometers.  However, only absorption...

The Zhang Group discovered that both light scattering and fluorescence (not light scattering alone assumed in existing literature) can contribute to...

Using polarized resonance synchronous spectroscopic technique recently invented by them, the Zhang Group quantified the extinction, scattering,...

The Webster Group and collaborators report the first self-sensitized homogeneous photocatalyst for H2 production. A previously reported di...

The Webster Group and collaborators report the excited state (ES) linkage isomerization of a series of ruthenium complexes bearing a chelating...

The Webster Group reports a previously uncharacterized “closed” Cs-symmetric agostomer of cyclohexenylmanganese tricarbonyl [(C6...

The Webster and Hollis Groups report the extreme π-loading (CCC-NHC) pincer Ta(V) bis(imido) complex that catalyzes the cyclization of α,ω-...

The Webster Group and collaborators report structural modifications of molecular cobalt catalysts that provide important insights into the structure–...

The Cui Group has developed a practical and direct synthetic access to saturated cyclic compounds by catalytic [2+2+2] reactions of simple alkenes....

The Cui Group and collaborators have developed an operationally simple and direct synthesis of 1,2-disulfonyl-1,2-diazetidine derivatives, a unique...
