Physical Chemistry

Research in physical chemistry includes molecular spectroscopy (ESR, electronic, infrared, lasers, NMR, Raman), mass spectrometry, catalysis, surface science, kinetics, equilibria, molecular beams and supersonic jets, thermochemistry, theoretical chemistry, matrix isolation, high temperature chemistry, vibrational analysis, absorption processes, environmental technology, solid state chemistry, and catalysis.

Student research may involve both the use of standard resolution solid state NMR, x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, scanning tunneling microscopy, atomic force microscopy, ion scattering spectroscopy, secondary ion mass spectrometry, ultra-high vacuum chambers equipped with a complete line of surface analytical techniques and much more.
