posted on November 19, 2013

Assistant Professor Connie Lu (Chemistry) is featured in a new online publication by the American Chemical Society that highlights recent achievements by young researchers in the field of synthetic inorganic chemistry. The issue is available on the ACS Publications website. 

Professor Lu and her research group use MSI as part of their investigations into first-row transition metals, with the ultimate goal of making cheap and sustainable catalysts. They perform density functional theory and ab initio CASSCF (complete active space self-consistent field) calculations to support experimental work. Some of this work using MSI is featured in the papers linked from the ACS publication.
