WE ARE BACK ONLINE! The Hammes-Schiffer group has moved to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Please check back soon for future updates.

April 29, 2009: The Makefiles in PCET-4.0 package were updated (missing dependencies were added). Thanks to Shubin Liu from UNC at Chapel Hill for letting us know about the problem.

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 The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. 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.
