    The Study of Reactive Intermediates in Condensed Phases


    Carpenter, B, Harvey, JN & Orr-Ewing, AJ, 2016, ‘The Study of Reactive Intermediates in Condensed Phases’. Journal of the American Chemical Society, vol 138., pp. 4695-4705


    Novel experimental techniques and computational methods have provided
    new insight into the behavior of reactive intermediates in solution. The
    results of these studies show that some of the earlier ideas about how
    reactive intermediates ought to behave in solution were incomplete or
    even incorrect. This Perspective summarizes the new experimental and
    computational methods and draws attention to the shortcomings that their
    application has brought to light in previous models. Key areas needing
    further research are highlighted.
