Physical Organic Chemistry
"James E. ("
Ned Jackson was born in 1955 in Boston, Massachusetts. After obtaining his AB from Harvard in 1977 (Bill Gates's class!), he sailed twice across the Atlantic, flirted with Oceanography research in a NOAA lab, and after starting graduate study with Wes Borden at the University of Washington, moved to Princeton where he earned his Ph.D. in Chemistry under the guidance of Professors Maitland Jones, Jr., and Leland C. Allen, in 1987. After a wonderful postdoctoral stay with Matt Platz at Ohio State University, he joined the Chemistry faculty at Michigan State University. His research interests include experimental and computational studies of reactive intermediates, design of organic molecular magnetic materials, development of biomass-based catalytic pathways to “petrochemicals”, and of course, dihydrogen bonding.
