CGSO Sponsored Seminar About the Seminar: Heavy metal containing phosphors, especially iridium-based emitters, have become the standard in high performance mobile displays and televisions. The high spin orbit coupling in these compounds facilitates the efficient harvesting of both singlet and triplet excitons generated in the electroluminescent process. An alternative to Ir-based emitters are solely-organic emitters […]

About the seminar: Approximately sixty percent of the mass of the human body is composed of water. Water is not the passive background against which biology unfolds, but an active participator in change. The structural and dynamical properties of water determine the outcome of biological and chemical change. This change occurs at interfaces and in […]

Styrenes are widely utilized synthetic precursors for a range of polymerization and hydro-/dual-functionalization reactions. Chemists commonly probe the mechanism of these reactions by selectively incorporating deuterium onto the vinyl positions of the styrene derivative. There have been several catalytic methods reported to either completely label the vinyl group or selectively label the β-position with deuterium. […]

About the Seminar Nanoscale materials potentially offer rapid and reversible optical modulation in electrochromic smart window technologies. Nanoparticles must modulate between transparent and colored states with the same rate and magnitude to achieve uniform color across a large-area smart window. However, it is currently unclear how interaction between nanoparticles can affect these dynamics. I will […]
