New delocalization pathways in conjugated materials

New delocalization pathways in conjugated materials
In a collaboration with chemists at Georgetown University and University of Oregon, the Tovar group engineered radial conjugation pathways into pi-conjugated systems that are traditionally made up of linear pathways. Read more about this finding in the Journal of the American Chemical Society.

Kempa Group Publishes in Nature Nanotechnology

Kempa Group Publishes in Nature Nanotechnology
Congratulations to Tomojit Chowdhury, Jungkil Kim, Erick Sadler and Prof. Kempa on the recent publication of their paper in Nature Nanotechnology! The Kempa group used designer surfaces to control precisely the growth, dimensions, and optical properties of transition-metal dichalcogenide (TMD) nanocrystals. Read the JHU Hub article to access the discussing this breakthrough.


The Goldberg Group Publishes in JACS

The Goldberg Group Publishes in JACS
The Goldberg Group reports a series of sequentially formed peroxo(diiron), FeIV(O), and FeIII(OH) complexes from the reaction of a thiolate-ligated nonheme iron complex with O2. These complexes improve our understanding of the fundamental process of dioxygen activation by iron complexes and the related sulfur-ligated nonheme iron enzymes.

ChemDNA teaches science through Harry Potter

ChemDNA teaches science through Harry Potter
Students from the chemistry department, through the group ChemDNA, volunteered at a Harry Potter STEM day hosted by the USO. ChemDNA had a great time helping kids build LED wands, make slime, grow mandrake plants, and learn about invisible ink.
