I was shocked and saddened to learn of the death of Paul Barbara, a tremendous physical chemist and National Academy of Sciences member at the University of Texas. Prof. Barbara's research focused largely on electron transfer and single-molecule spectroscopy, and I met him originally because of a mutual interest in organic semiconductors. He was very smart, funny, and a class act all the way, happy to talk science with me even when I was a brand new assistant professor just getting into our field of mutual interest. He will be missed.
