'A Personal Walk Through Rutgers Chemistry'

October 12, 2012 by admin

By Joe Malanaphy

     Larry Romsted PhD, a chemistry professor at Rutgers University will be speaking as part of a Visiting Lecture Series from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 16 in MAN 105.

     Romsted earned a PhD from Indiana University, and completed his post-doc at UC-Santa Barbara. His research covers bio-organic, biophysical, and association colloid chemistries.

     Developing an understanding of the balance in forces that control the structure and compositions of aggregated systems is the focus of his studies and teachings.

     According to Rutgers University website, Romsted developed the pseudophase ion exchange model that provides the current basis for describing how surfactant solutions catalyze biomolecular reactions. At Rutgers, his research group developed a unique chemical trapping method to understand how the interactions between water and ions determine the organization of surfactants into spherical, threadlike or layered structure in solution.
