Hi everyone! I guess with the official summer research period almost over, it’s time for a fourth update. While this project will absolutely continue into the school year – it’s grown too much in scope to finish it by the end of the summer – I am trying to tie up any loose ends that […]

It’s so hard to believe that the research period has almost come to an end! However, even with just about a week and a half left to go, my project is still in full swing – or at least, a half of it is … The synthetic portion of my project came to a screeching […]

I’m a bit over halfway through my summer research period, and I’m pretty impressed with how quickly the time has passed. I guess 10 weeks isn’t quite as long as I first thought! The synthetic portion of my project has moved forward very quickly – and grown quite a bit since the start of the summer. […]

Metal to Ligand Charge Transfer (MLCT) in [PyX][CuI2] systems

By • Mar 31st, 2017 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

A charge transfer (CT) occurs when electron density in the highest occupied molecular orbital (HOMO) of the metal complex is excited to the lowest unoccupied molecular orbital (LUMO) of the complex. As one might expect, the nature of the CT behavior in a metal complex varies significantly with the choice of the metal and the […]
