Research Interests

Physical Chemistry — Chemical reaction dynamics, molecular spectroscopy, energy, atmospheric and combustion chemistry, and lasers

Moore was among the first chemists to use lasers in the 1960s and opened major new areas of molecular energy transfer, chemical reaction kinetics and photochemistry. In recent years he provided quantitative benchmarks for theories of chemical bond breaking. His work provides a strong foundation for models of atmospheric and combustion chemistry. It is reviewed in the prefatory chapter of the 2007 volume of Ann. Rev. Phys. Chem. 58, 1-33.
