Karn publishes article


Nicole M. Karn, assistant professor of chemistry, a co-author of an article published in February, 2014, issue of the prestigious journal, Chemical Science. The work is an investigation of the redox processes of transition metal complexes in their excited states. These types of complexes have applications in solar energy conversion. Specifically, Karn utilized femtosecond spectroscopy to investigate the photophysical processes that these complexes undergo in their excited states.

The full title of the article is “Directional charge transfer and highly reducing and oxidizing excited states of new dirhodium (II,II) complexes: potential applications in solar energy conversion” by Zhangyong Li, Nicholas A. Leed, Nicole M. Dickson-Karn, Kim R. Dunbar and Claudia Turro.
