Research seminar abstract Polymeric materials are an essential and ubiquitous part of modern life. Currently, the primary source of building blocks for these increasingly important commodities are supplied by the petroleum industry. The eminent depletion of petroleum feed stocks has led to the need to develop alternative sources of monomers suitable to meet the ever-increasing […]

Ions, Electrons, and Phonons: on the movement of charge through solids

Brent Melot Presents:

Tuesday January 30th, 2018 at 4:00 PM in Chemistry A101

Li-ion batteries are ubiquitous; powering our cell phones, tablets, and laptop computers. Yet, fundamentally, we’ve exclusively relied on materials that adopt the same ordered rock salt structure type for over 20 years. What makes these materials so special and why is it so hard to move past them? This talk will present work our group […]

Natural organic matter (NOM) is an extremely complex mixture comprised of a collection of plant, animal, and microbial byproducts at various stages of decomposition. In addition to being one of the largest contributors to the terrestrial carbon pool, the molecular composition of NOM is of extreme interest due to its involvement in key processes that […]

Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assays (ELISA) are a conventional disease diagnostic approach. ELISA is frequently used to detect clinically relevant proteins, antibodies and small molecules. Typically, the assay is comprised of the antigen of interest, immobilized to a surface, that is complexed with an antibody which is then linked to an enzyme and lastly introduced to […]

Toward Increased Precision and Efficiency in Macromolecular Synthesis: New Strategies and Enabling Functions

Jeremiah Johnson Presents:

Monday February 19th, 2018 at 4:00 PM in Chemistry A101

Motivated by nature, polymer chemists have long sought methods and strategies for the synthesis of macromolecules with precise structures. Existing approaches typically require a trade-off between structural control and atom economy/scalability. Seeking more efficient strategies, and driven by specific functional targets, we have developed approaches that simultaneously offer enhanced precision and efficiency in a variety […]

Microdroplet Chemistry, a New Frontier

Dick Zare Presents:

Wednesday March 7th, 2018 at 4:00 PM in Chemistry A101

My research group has been studying chemical reactions in microdroplets and comparing the findings with the behavior of the same reaction in bulk solution.  Our detection method has primarily been high-resolution mass spectrometry.  Two different experimental setups are employed, one involving fusing together two streams of microdroplets (shown in Fig. l, the panel on the […]
