Chemistry Department Seminar

"Astrochemistry in the Laboratory – Combining Theory and Experiment"

Presented by Kelvin Lee, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics

Monday, June 11, 2018, 11:00 am — Room 300, 3rd Floor, Chemistry Bldg. 555

Brief overview of the laboratory and theoretical efforts in astrochemistry at the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. Will highlight one of our areas of research – the characterization and spectroscopy of molecular isomers in space by showcasing two recent projects (1) the rotational spectroscopy of ethynethiol (HCCSH), a higher energy isomer of thioketene, and (2) the first-principles high accuracy chemical network we are developing for the production and destruction of hydrogen (iso)cyanide in space.
