1989 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
Organic chemistry, Monomer, Montmorillonite, Stereochemistry and Abiogenesis are his primary areas of study. His Organic chemistry research integrates issues from DNA and Prebiotic. His Montmorillonite research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Inorganic chemistry, Molecule, Catalysis and Aqueous solution.
His research investigates the connection between Catalysis and topics such as Oligomer that intersect with problems in Chemical reaction, Hydroxylapatite, Polymerization and Polymer. His Aqueous solution study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Hydrolysis, RNA world hypothesis and Polymer chemistry. His research integrates issues of Amino acid, Polynucleotide, Phosphodiester bond and Oligonucleotide in his study of Stereochemistry.
James P. Ferris focuses on Organic chemistry, Montmorillonite, Catalysis, Photochemistry and Stereochemistry. His work on Hydrolysis, Polymerization and Hydrogen cyanide as part of general Organic chemistry research is often related to Chemical evolution, thus linking different fields of science. His Montmorillonite research includes themes of Medicinal chemistry, Oligomer, Polymer chemistry, Aqueous solution and Monomer.
In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Monomer, Oligonucleotide is strongly linked to Phosphodiester bond. The concepts of his Catalysis study are interwoven with issues in Inorganic chemistry, Diaminomaleonitrile and Uridine. The various areas that James P. Ferris examines in his Photochemistry study include Acetylene, Hydrogen, Atmospheric chemistry and Cyanoacetylene.
James P. Ferris mainly investigates Montmorillonite, Catalysis, Monomer, Stereochemistry and Dimer. James P. Ferris combines subjects such as Medicinal chemistry, Inorganic chemistry, Adsorption, Polymer chemistry and Molecule with his study of Montmorillonite. His Catalysis study introduces a deeper knowledge of Organic chemistry.
In his study, Enzyme catalysis is strongly linked to DNA, which falls under the umbrella field of Organic chemistry. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Abiogenesis, Phosphodiester bond, Combinatorial chemistry, Oligonucleotide and Aqueous solution. His research investigates the link between Stereochemistry and topics such as Regioselectivity that cross with problems in Reactivity, RNase P, Stereoisomerism, Electrophoresis and Metal ions in aqueous solution.
James P. Ferris spends much of his time researching Monomer, Montmorillonite, Stereochemistry, Catalysis and Organic chemistry. His studies deal with areas such as Selectivity, Oligomer and Aqueous solution as well as Monomer. His Aqueous solution research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Biochemistry, RNA world hypothesis, Polymer chemistry and Abiogenesis.
The study incorporates disciplines such as Inorganic chemistry, Molecule and Adsorption in addition to Montmorillonite. His studies in Stereochemistry integrate themes in fields like Dimer, Phosphodiester bond, Medicinal chemistry and Regioselectivity. His Organic chemistry study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Adenosine and Prebiotic.
