Spectroscopy: We use linear solvation energy relationships (LSERs) to quantify the effects of intermolecular interactions on the absorbance and emission spectra of solvatochromic dyes.
Chromatography: We study the intermolecular interactions governing all modes of chromatography. We are currently developing a system selectivity cube (SSC) in order to compare the selectivity of different chromatographic systems.
