Research in the C.C. Jarrold lab encompasses two areas of physical chemistry using gas-phase reactivity and spectroscopic techniques. The first area involves probing the molecular scale interactions that are relevant in heterogeneous catalysis. We measure the reactivity, electronic, and molecular structures of metal oxide cluster models for defect sites on metal oxide surfaces. The second area is atmospheric chemistry. Atmospheric radical reaction complexes are prepared and studied by photodetaching stable anionic precursors, in an effort to determine the energies of reactions and the unique photophysical properties of collision complexes.
