The theoretical description of the rates of chemical reactions is given by the subject of chemical dynamics.
Chemistry Research Groups
We design new catalytic transformations for the synthesis of complex molecules and investigate the activation mechanisms of transition metal precatalysts.
We study the connections between messenger RNA translation and cellular identity using mouse embryonic stem cells as a model system.
The LaRiviere group is interested in fundamental aspects of ribosome metabolism in eukaryotes. Specifically, we are investigating ribosome assembly and turnover in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
The Tuchler group has developed a technique involving Cavity Ringdown Laser Spectroscopy to measure the equilibrium constant as a function of temperature. Another area of interest in the Tuchler group involves pedagogical applications of Computational methods in Chemistry.
The Uffelman group performs imaging and standoff chemical analysis on paintings and other cultural heritage objects.
