Teaching

Here you will find some notes for various classes that I teach as well as links to information that you may find useful. The notes on catalysis are not comprehensive, rather they are introductions to general classes of catalytic reactions. In the future we hope to have more in depth notes posted that focus on important catalytic “name” reactions.
