About the Seminar Benefiting from an ever-expanding library of functionality, nanoscale ‘devices’ are being developed that can measure and manipulate their environment at molecular scales. Employed as platforms for wireless monitoring, I have used these devices to measure the nanoscale structure of folded DNA and RNA, enabling methods for remote observation DNA and RNA activity […]

Research Seminar Abstract Photonic crystals (PC) are periodic nanostructures engineered in nature to reflect different wavelengths of light for camouflage, signaling, photosynthesis, and heat control. These natural photonic crystals can be mimicked through the self-assembly of block copolymers (BCPs). The challenge of BCP self-assembly to photonic crystals is that chain entanglement often impedes the self-assembly […]

Lloyd Sumner Ph.D., sponsored by Brunker Daltonics, will be the keynote speaker for the CIF Winter Symposium. About the Seminar Triterpene saponins are important bioactive plant natural products found in many plant families including the Leguminosae, but much of their biosynthetic pathway still remains unknown. We have used a metabolomics approach integrated with gene expression […]

About the Seminar Cell penetrating peptides have a unique potential for targeted drug delivery, therefore, mechanistic understanding of their membrane action has been sought since their discovery over 20 years ago. While ATP-driven endocytosis is known to play a major role in their internalization, there has been also ample evidence for the importance of passive […]

About the Seminar Developing a drug is more than synthesizing analogues and doing some rational medical chemistry optimization. The process of taking a disease and finding a treatment takes an enormous team of individuals with a broad range of technical and soft skills. Somewhere along the way through development you need an analytical chemistry team […]

Research Seminar Abstract Advancements in material science have shown improvements in fields such as microfabrication, dye-sensitized solar cells, hydrogels, and drug delivery systems. As these advances are being made the underpinning physical properties that drive the self-assembly mechanisms of these systems are not well understood. To try and understand these self-assembly processes, two-dimensional infrared (2D […]

Research Seminar Abstract Substituting the graphite in today’s commercial Li-ion batteries with high capacity anode materials such as antimony (Sb) could increase the energy stored in such a cell. However, the high capacity of Sb results in large volume changes of the anode during discharge/recharge cycles that mechanically degrade the anode, ultimately causing the cell […]

About the Seminar It is widely recognized that dynamic environmental systems should preferably be monitored in situ, as traditional sampling and off-site analysis will invariably alter local equilibria, especially with chemical species that are kinetically labile and reactive. Unfortunately, very few such species can today be monitored reliably, as only pH sensors are integrated in […]

About the Seminar Most plasmonic metals studied to date are composed of either Cu, Ag, and Au. The former two can pose significant challenges related to oxidation, the latter is often perceived as cost-prohibitive, and all three are rare. Recently, much attention has been focused on earth-abundant Al, which is an excellent plasmonic in the […]

About the Seminar Organic solar cells (OSCs) are a potential cost-effective way to transform solar energy into electricity due to their potential for low-cost and high-throughput roll-to-roll production. Improving the power conversion efficiency (PCE) and stability of OSCs are two of the most important tasks on the march towards commercialization. While much effort has 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 […]
