A study on methane reactivity by Joel Bowman and colleague Gabor Czako has been published in the journal Science. The article, “Dynamics of the Reaction of Methane with Chlorine Atom on an Accurate Potential Energy Surface” appears in the October 21st issue.
The Bowman Group has had two publications in Science so far this year. The first one, “Quantum Deconstruction of the Infrared Spectrum of CH5+” appeared in the Jan. 6, 2006 issue, and the second one, “Signature of H2CO Photodissociation from Two Electronic States” appeared in the March 10, 2006 issue.
Dr. Bowman was also recently elected a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
