Dr. Manny Curotto, professor and chair of Chemistry and Physics, recently published an essay in The Journal of Physical Chemistry titled “Quest for Inexpensive Hydrogen Isotopic Fractionation: Do We Need 2D Quantum Confining in Porous Materials or Are Rough Surfaces Enough? The Case of Ammonia Nanoclusters.”  

The essay, co-authored with Dr. Massimo Mella, associate professor of Science and Technology at Università degli Studi dell’Insubria in Italy, discusses the interaction between hydrogen isotopes and ammonia nanoclusters and how they may be used to more efficiently separate hydrogen isotopes at low temperatures.
