The ACS Physical Chemistry Division gives this award out annually to early and senior career professionals to recognize their profound achievements within the division. Dr. Yarkony is being awarded “for his work demonstrating the significance and properties of conical intersections of two or more adiabatic electronic states.” Congrats, Dr. Yarkony!
The Thoi group will be funded by the National Science Foundation to study the redox behavior of MOFs for energy storage devices through a prestigious CAREER Award. Congrats, Dr. Thoi!
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.
The JHU Hub documented the Kempa group’s breakthrough in nanocrystal synthesis that was recently published in Nature Nanotechnology. Read the article describing this research and its implications for quantum information science.
Congratulations to David (Thoi lab) and Eric (Klausen lab) for their publication in Angewandte Chemie on switchable multi-state frameworks! Check out their paper here.
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 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.

Congratulations to Avery and Xu in the Thoi lab for their publication in JACS on using functionalized MOFs to mitigate a critical failure pathway in Li-S batteries! Check out their paper here: https://pubs.acs.org/doi/10.1021/jacs.9b09538 Congrats again Avery and Xu!
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.
