We are moving to Yale University in January 2018! The Hammes-Schiffer group will be relocating to Yale University in January 2018. During this time period the site might be experiencing short outages.

September 13, 2017: Downloads page was updated (pcet-5 and grid codes added).

Welcome to webPCET!

This site is devoted to the wonderful and exciting world of Proton-Coupled Electron Transfer (PCET). PCET reactions are ubiquitous and play a critical role in a variety of chemical and biological processes including photosynthesis and respiration.

In addition to providing general information on PCET and PCET-related research, this site includes a Java application server containing Java servlets that illustrate the theoretical concepts of PCET. The application server is powered by Apache Tomcat 5.5 servlet container and Wolfram webMathematica 3 and requires a web browser with Javascript and Java enabled (no Wolfram Mathematica is required on the client side). Access to this server is restricted to registered users only, but the registration is free and unlimited.

The site is maintained by the Hammes-Schiffer Group in the Department of Chemistry at Yale University. The creation and maintenance of this web site is supported by the National Science Foundation for POWERING THE PLANET: A Chemical Bonding Center in the Direct Conversion of Sunlight into Chemical Fuel.
