Research

Although a process of commercial promise, aerosol fluorination provides a wealth of previously unavailable information about the interaction of molecular and atomic fluorine with organic functional groups, polymers, organometallic compounds and compounds of the "p-block" elements. Students in our group receive broad experiences in vacuum line technology, chromatography, inert atmosphere techniques, microprocessor controlled reactions, as well as operational and interpretational aspects of infrared, multinuclear nmr, UV-visible, and mass spectrometries. The group is an interdisciplinary mix of inorganic, organic and physical organic inclined individuals.


Education
