Literature Seminar Abstract: Metalloenzymes drive chemical processes across life forms and mimicking this reactivity still remains a synthetic challenge. Almost all metalloenzyme active sites are composed of transition metals. In 2007 in volcanic mudpools in southern Italy, the bacteria Methylacidiphilum fumariolicum was discovered with an enzyme containing a lanthanide active site in a methanol dehydrogenase […]

Literature Seminar Abstract Petroleum production is a multibillion dollar global industry producing over nine million barrels of oil a day.  All unrefined petroleum contains sulfur which when combusted forms acid rain and smog producing SOx.  Complete sulfur removal during refining is challenging due to refractory molecular structures and difficulties in their characterization.  Characterization would allow […]

Literature Seminar Abstract Insecticides are ubiquitous and trace levels can be found in soil, water, air, and food residues. The mode of action that causes the insecticide to be harmful to insects is also found in humans, so if humans are exposed to high enough levels, there are negative health effects. Therefore, it is necessary […]

In this seminar, I will discuss two developments in ultrafast nonlinear IR spectroscopy for exotic molecular materials: (1) 2D IR spectroscopy for molecular vibrational polaritons and (2) transient electric field induced VSFG spectroscopy for probing interfacial charge transfer. Both show the advantages of ultrafast nonlinear IR spectroscopic technique: to decipher hidden physics of exotic molecular […]

About the Seminar The interface between two fluids is not only important for defining reactivity of dislike materials, but is also applicable for the preparation of stable higher order structures. Recently, the Pentzer lab developed 2D carbon-based nanosheets that assemble at different fluid-fluid interfaces including oil-water, oil-oil, and ionic liquid-water and demonstrated the use of […]

Literature Seminar Abstract Single molecule magnets have been shown to be capable of performing as a quantum bit, or qubit, which is predicted to revolutionize the world of computing. However current day single molecule magnets only exhibit magnetic hysteresis, and thus can only act as a qubit, below liquid nitrogen temperatures. In 2014 a study […]

Literature Seminar Abstract Self-assembly has occurred in nature since the beginning of time, but only in the past 30 years has the term found its way into chemical literature to describe autonomous organization in various systems, from monolayers to nanoparticle superstructures. Nanoparticle self-assembly can be used as a high throughput method for the fabrication of […]

Literature Seminar Abstract Non-Invasive sensing is a growing global market where the need for continuous, wearable sensors is constantly developing. Specifically, biosensors have been an attractive alternative to bulky and expensive analytical instruments used in health-care today. Having the ability to monitor overall health of a patient without having to draw blood or use other […]

Literature Seminar Abstract Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is a redox molecule produced in many enzymatic reactions and therefore an important analyte to detect for biosensors. Although electrochemical detection of H2O2 is commonly used, many commercial applications are limited by expensive electrode materials. Graphene oxide has become of particular interest as a cheaper alternative for electrode material. […]

Abstract Actinides in the +3 oxidation state occupy central roles in many areas that are important for our quality of life. These range from developing targeted alpha therapy in treating cancer to processing spent nuclear fuel. Hence, there is pressing need to advance fundamental understanding of +3 actinide coordination chemistry. While numerous heroic efforts have […]

Solar and wind are carbon-neutral, sustainable energy sources, but because they are intermittent, reliable energy storage is needed. Catalysts that efficiently interconvert between electrical energy and chemical bonds (fuels) are needed for sustainable, secure energy. Electrocatalysts based on inexpensive, earth-abundant metals (“Cheap Metals for Noble Tasks”) are needed. Ni complexes with “P2N2” ligands have been […]

Since the pioneering alkane activation work by Shilov in the early 1970’s, the detailed mechanism of electrophilic methane to methanol conversion by Pt(II) salts has remained an unresolved issue. In this talk we present our longstanding research on platinum organometallics under acidic and superacidic conditions. By employing strongly electron-withdrawing perfluorinated ancillary phosphine ligands, we have […]

Organic acids are numerous and pervasive in Earth’s lower atmosphere. They contribute to ozone formation chemistry as well as the production of secondary organic aerosols, thus impacting both human and ecosystem health. Despite their relevance, organic acid budgets in the atmosphere remain poorly understood. Models underestimate measured ambient concentrations of many organic acids, suggesting an […]
