11/19/14 - Dave to co-chair a Telluride Science Research Center workshop entitled, "Zero-Field Spin Effects in Molecular Systems," June 23-27, 2015.
Workshop description, venue and meeting details.
Full listing of 2015 TSRC workshops and conferences.
10/25/14 - The Shultz Group welcomes its two newest members, Patrick Hewitt and David Russell!
04/15/14 - Congratulations to Tich on his paper "Ligand Control of Donor-Acceptor Excited State Lifetimes" published in Inorg. Chem.!
Donor-Bridge-Acceptor (D-B-A) biradicals can provide us electronic coupling information across organic bridge fragments. There have been promising approaches for integration of D-B-A molecules into solar energy conversion electrochemical cells, application for nano-scale molecular electronics, as well as understanding the fundamentals of Donor-Acceptor interactions.
Photogenerated biradicals show promise for extending excited state lifetimes making them interesting for electron transfer mechanisms and potentially useful for solar energy purposes.
Cobalt based valence tautomers have a unique stability through their hs-CoII and ls-CoIII forms that make them ideal for spin-dependant electron transport in devices (spintronics).
Our work on valence tautomers has spawned numerous collaborations around the world.
