Wilson Ho's research highlighted in UCI news.
Wilson Ho, who came to UCI in 2000, has made a career out of trying to understand intermolecular behavior. He wants to know “what the nature of this interaction is, what’s really happening at the point of bonding and what makes molecules attract each other to form more complicated, extended structures?”
In recent months, he and his research group have made significant breakthroughs in their efforts to see these heretofore invisible processes. Their goal was to get a snapshot of chemical bonds involving fluorine, which shares a column on the periodic table with other so-called halogen elements, including chlorine, bromine and iodine.
