I was active for many years (1960 - 1980) in ultraviolet and x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. This work resulted in the publication of numerous papers in journals. In addition I co-authored two books, wrote chapters, review articles, and with my graduate students wrote the "Fundamental Review Feature" on these techniques for Analytical Chemistry during the period 1976-1980. More recently I have become interested in the chemistry of organic nitrogen compounds - nitrones, imines, N-oxides, pyridines and related heterocycles. One area of interest is the use of polypyridines and phenanthroline derivatives as ligands in metal complexes that can interact selectively with DNA. This work has resulted in several publications, is ongoing, and has expanded to include novel synthetic routes to various types of nitrogen-containing heterocycles. More recently we have embarked on the synthesis and study of quaternized quinolines as inhibitors of protein kinase C, with a view to developing new therapeutic agents.

Our research focuses on using mass spectrometry and ion-molecule reaction techniques to probe biologically relevant processes in a spectrum of systems ranging from isolated biomolecules and biomolecular ions, through micelles and aerosol droplets of biomolecules, to biomolecule solution. <br> <br>We are also interested in discovering and developing new analytical approaches.&nbsp; In addition, we have related interests in computational chemistry (e.g. quasi-classical direct dynamics trajectory simulations) and nano-materials.

As a facility director for NMR, we involve ourselves with small molecule as well as large molecule structural problems. We are also part of a working group in science education and in particular, I am involved in directing the chemistry education majors to become excellent high school teachers
