Fry Published in 4 Chemistry, Electrochemical Publications

Albert J. Fry, the E. B. Nye Professor of Chemistry, is the author of four new papers published in 2013.

“Ion pairing and association effects between tetraalkylammonium Ions and nitrobenzene redox species: Ion pairing to neutral substances” and ” Ion pairing of tetraalkylammonium ions to nitrosobenzene and benzaldehyde redox species: A general binding motif for the interaction of tetraalkylammonium ions with benzenoid species,” were published in the March and August editions, respectively, of the Journal of Organic Chemistry. The third, “The ‘steric effect’ of tetraalkylammonium ions on electrochemically generated anions is not steric” was published in the August edition of Electrochemistry Communications. These are the 7th, 8th, and 9th publications in an on-going project being carried out on the Wesleyan Computer Cluster with the overall title “Computational Studies of Ion Pairing.” The fourth publication, co-authored by Anthony Davis, Ph.D ’12, is titled, “Selective oxidation of an unsymmetrical distyrylbenzene at either of two sites” and was published in the Journal of the Electrochemical Society in April.
