Article featured in journal cover

Our recent article was featured in the cover of Angewandte Chemie International Edition!

“Water–dimethyl sulfoxide interactions are dissected using IR spectroscopy. In their Communication (DOI: 10.1002/anie.201704162, C. R. Baiz et al. show that hydrogen-bond populations in binary mixtures can be directly quantified and molecular ensembles can be correlated to macroscopic solution properties. The fishes represent DMSO molecules jumping out of the water in groups to portray the strong DMSO–DMSO self-interaction.”

DMSO/water paper published in Angewandte

Our paper on DMSO/water hydrogen bonding is now published! Congratulations Kwang-Im and Kavya!
