Catalysts in Industry: Johnson Matthey Catalysts and Chiral Technology

Seminar | December 7 | 1-2 p.m. | Gilman Hall, Library room F

 Dr. Jesse McAtee

 College of Chemistry

Industrial catalyst demands today are complex, but many of the classical inefficient practices remain. Looking where new catalyst technology and manufacturing practicality overlap, one may find new products for industry.

The effect of quantum nuclear motion on hydrogen bonding

Seminar: Statistical Mechanics | December 9 | 2-4 p.m. | 775B Tan Hall

 Ross McKenzie, University of Queensland

 College of Chemistry

Most of chemistry can be understood by treating the atoms in molecules as
classical particles. Quantum zero-point motion and tunnelling do not play
an essential role. Important exceptions are molecules involving hydrogen
bonding, including water [1], proton sponges, organic acids, and some
enzymes.
Quantum nuclear effects are revealed by isotope substitution experiments
where
hydrogen is...   More >
