Jerry LaRue.  Chapman University.  Revealing the nature of chemical reactions.  22 April 2020.
Abstract: Chemical reactions are all around us: from sustaining life to driving a green economy. Despite their immense importance, we still understand little about the fundamental processes that drive them. Using a simple molecule, carbon monoxide, Dr. LaRue and collaborators used an ultrafast x-ray laser to reveal critical elements of chemical reactions. These insights may hold the key to developing more sustainable technologies that meet the challenges of tomorrow, such as climate change and pollution.
