About Alvan C. Hengge

The goals of my laboratory’s research lie in the areas of mechanistic organic chemistry and biochemistry. Specific areas focus on the molecular details of catalysis, especially of enzymatic reactions, involving phosphoryl transfer, sulfuryl transfer, and acyl transfer reactions. I am particularly interested in how mechanisms of enzymatic reactions compare with the analogous uncatalyzed reactions in solution.
