Solution-phase reaction dynamics

Gaining control

Nature Chemistry volume 10, pages 113114 (2018) | Download Citation

Using infrared light to control the outcome of a chemical reaction is problematic in solution because of numerous interactions and non-specific sample heating. Now, condensed-phase results showing the vibrational enhancement of an otherwise thermally driven reaction may reinvigorate discussion of the practical applications of vibrational control.
