Edward D. Lorance, PhD. (VU ’95) is Professor of Chemistry at Vanguard University of Southern California. Dr. Lorance completed his undergraduate education at Vanguard University (then Southern California College) in Costa Mesa, California in chemistry and mathematics before earning his Ph. D. at the University of Arizona in Tucson, AZ (2005); the title of his dissertation was “Synthetic and Computational Studies on Organosulfur Radical Cations and α-Metalated Sulfides” and involved both theoretical and experimental work with radical cations and carbanions. He then completed a two-year postdoctoral fellowship at Arizona State University which involved theory and laser flash photolysis of very fast bond fragmentation reactions. His current research involves the elucidation of reaction mechanisms of radical ion species, excited states, and especially high-temperature, high-pressure aqueous reactions.
In addition to regularly scheduled class and laboratory times, he is available on campus during office hourse (which vary by semester). If questions arise at other times, you may contact him via email or by telephone to make other arrangements by appointment.
