Schreiner, Peter R.

Physical Organic Chemistry

The Schreiner group focuses on organocatalytic reactions and methods (thioureas, oligopeptides), nanodiamonds (diamondoids) as novel organic building blocks and materials (e.g., organic electronics), matrix isolation of reactive intermediates (e.g., carbenes) and computational chemistry. In the realm of “experimental quantum mechanics”, we uncover hitherto unobserved effects of quantum mechanical tunneling and the mutual attraction exerted by London dispersion. All studies involve chemical synthesis, spectroscopy, and quantum-mechanical computations.
