Chemistry Departmental Seminar — Prof. Karah Knope, Georgetown University
Workshop / Seminar

Structural chemistry has played an important role in our understanding of the chemical and physical behavior of the heavy elements. Yet our understanding of the chemistry, bonding, and reactivity of actinide complexes and clusters still lags behind that of the rest of the Periodic Table. This lack of structural and chemical information has led to large discrepancies in thermodynamic data, significant challenges in process chemistry, and the unexpected mobility of heavy elements in the environment.
