Hunt Research Group
Our research is focused towards understanding the chemistry and physics associated with solvents and solvation, particularly as this applies to ionic-liquds and aqueous solutions.
We study the making and breaking of molecules. This includes catalytic mechanisms (for group II and frustriated lewis acid-base pairs) and chemical decomposition (bio-fuels and ionic-liquids).
Overarching all of these areas is a specialisation in hydrogen-bonding, acid-base interactions and an expertise in the MO theory of bonding. We have developed the Effective MO Method for interrogating the electronic structure of liquids.
