Our research focuses on the quantum chemical modeling of inorganic systems. Our primary interest is in the modeling of the biochemical activity of various inorganic elements. We have recently been funded by the National Science Foundation for our work on modeling the effect of selenium compounds on biochemical signaling mechanisms. Additionally, have modeled the mechanism of the molybdoenzyme xanthine oxidoreductase and the tungsten enzyme acetylene hydratase. For more information, see our research page.
We are actively collaborating with the experimental groups of Nick Farrell at VCU (Pd/Pt-based chemotherapeutic agents), Robert Pike at William and Mary (CuCN photoluminescence), Julia Brumaghim at Clemson (S/Se inhibition of Fenton chemistry) and Rudy Luck of Michigan Tech (various projects).
