President's Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry
The figure illustrates a typical problem studied in our laboratory. We looked in detail at the mechanisms of bond fragmentation in radicals formed by single electron transfer reduction of cations. The fragmentations occur via combined bond-stretching and bending, avoiding the conical intersection shown in the figure. The work involved organic synthesis, ultrafast spectroscopic studies of reaction kinetics, computational chemistry and the development of simple kinetic theories.
