Redox Mechanisms


The Baik Lab is a Computational Molecular Modeling group in the Chemistry Department of Indiana University. They develop realistic computer models of complex chemical reactions. While we are far from being a synthetic group, we also carry out experiments in our group to calibrate our computer simulations, confirm our predictions or disprove our conceptual hypotheses. They collaborate with many experimental groups in pursuit of ambitious goals that include turning water and carbondioxide into fuel.
