We are a group of computational organic chemists at the University of Houston. We enjoy our "screen-time." But even more so the chemical insights we get out of it.
A central theme of our work is recognizing the interpretive power of fuzzy chemical concepts fuzzy chemical concepts (like aromaticity and antiaromaticity) for explaining the "why's and how's" of chemistry. Recently, we became interested in understandinghow light affects proton and electron transfer reactions along with the implications of excited-state (anti)aromaticity for designing functional molecules. We try our best to be good storytellers of our findings.
