About the Seminar: Synthetic iron-based catalysts that functionally model iron dependent oxygenases are rare. Considering the large number of synthetic iron complexes, why is this? We are taking a close look at this question and, in the process, have come up with some design principles that are guiding our work towards developing synthetic iron-based catalysts […]

About the Seminar: Characterization of protein molecular recognition is challenged by both the spatial heterogeneity of proteins and the rapid interconversion of potentially important conformational states. Our group takes advantage of the potential for high temporal and spatial resolution provided by linear and two-dimensional infrared spectroscopy in combination with the spectral selectivity afforded by site-specific […]

Literature Seminar Transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs), due to their unique optoelectrical properties, have been studied for decades. These van der Waals semiconductors are stable under electrochemical conditions while having a desirable band gap suitable for absorbing a wide range of solar wavelengths without wasting much energy as seen in solar energy conversion devices. Mechanical exfoliation […]

About the Seminar: Traditional transepithelial electrical resistance (TER) measurements in conjunction with molecular biology techniques are widely used to inform the present understanding of transport at tissue interfaces. These techniques, which include well-known Using chamber experiments, provide an excellent opportunity to study active ion transport and ion permeability. However, most of these measurements represent the […]

About the Seminar: Hybrid organic/inorganic semiconductors (HOIS) offer tremendous opportunities to control fundamental properties that underpin energy technologies. While currently there are enormous worldwide efforts exploring, exploiting and improving a narrow class of HOIS (lead-halide perovskites, such as methylammonium lead iodide (MAPbI3)), primarily for photovoltaic (PV) applications, an opportunity exists to transcend this initial focus […]

About the Seminar Oxidation and reduction reactions are among the most important and frequently executed processes in organic synthesis. However, our ability to manipulate the oxidation states of functional groups in complex settings with high efficiency, precision, and minimal waste remains in a largely nascent stage. Owing to its many distinct characteristics, electrochemistry represents an […]

About the Seminar: Observations of NO2 using orbiting UV/Vis spectrometers provide detailed images of cities. Interpreting the images provides insight into present day emissions and chemistry as well as a view into trends in chemistry over the last 15 years. In this talk I’ll describe development of methods that allow for accurate interpretation of the […]

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 […]
