The Fenlon and Brewer groups at F&M are collaborating with Dr. Robin Hochstrasser at the University of Pennsylvania to utilize 2D IR spectroscopy to investigate the solvent dynamics around azido- and nitrile-modified nucleosides.
The following publication has resulted from this collaboration (student coauthor bold):
Tucker, M.J.; Gai, X.S.; Fenlon, E.E.; Brewer, S.H.; Hochstrasser, R.M. 2D IR Photon Echo of Azido-Probes for Biomolecular Dynamics. Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics 2011, 13, 2237-2241.
