Research Interests

Studies involving gas phase chemical kinetics aimed at understanding elementary reaction paths and determining rate constants for reactions important in atmospheric photochemistry, hydrocarbon oxidation, and chlorocarbon reaction systems. Gas chromatography, GC/mass spectrometry and other Conventional analytical techniques are used to monitor reactant and product profiles from flow reactor experiments. Laser induced fluorescence and absorption is available to study transient species such as OH radical, in flames and flow reactors. Ab initio and semi-empirical calculations are used to determine thermo-chemical properties. Elementary reaction models are developed to obtain a fundamental understanding of the chemistry. The models are useful to industry, where they serve as valuable engineering tools for scientists or engineers to optimize or improve a chemical process.
