research overview

  • Professor Bierbaum's research focuses on the application of mass spectrometric techniques to studies of gas phase ion chemistry. These studies probe the kinetics, dynamics, and thermochemistry of a wide variety of gas phase ion-molecule reactions that have fundamental importance as well as relevance to interstellar, atmospheric, combustion, and biomedical chemistry.
