Cammers' Group Research Interests

We study fundamental forces responsible for molecular recognition, hydrogen bonding and weak coulombic interactions. We are also interested in how competitive solvation affects these. 

Condensed Phase π-Stacking

Aromatic interaction is often cited in the conformational control of biological molecules. We have devised a model for water-soluble, face-to-face, center-to-edge (FFCE) π-stacking. Our studies favor the argument that π-stacking is a cohesive aspect of organic molecules that entirely relies on electrostatics.
