In Dr. Dearden’s lab, I have been studying the binding of the halide acids (HF, HCl, HBr, HI) inside the cucurbit[5]uril cavity. I have already proven its plausibility using NWChem ab initio calculations and I am now trying to characterize it using Fourier Transform Ion Cyclotron Resonance (FTICR) Mass Spectometry.
