Synthesis of PCN Asymmetric Tridentate Ligand and Derivatives for Organometallic Catalysis
Catalysis plays a great role in the world today with one of the most prominent industries being the polymers industry. Linear alpha olefins (LAO’s) are short to long chain carbon molecules whose uses range from plastics ...
When is a Bug a Feature? : Enzymatic Activity in the Beer Brewing Process
The beer brewing industry has grown rapidly over the past several years. Because of this, the number of hop varieties has greatly expanded, making them a very valuable resource. To alleviate the financial strain, a ...
Floral Aromas and Funky Flavors : An Analysis of the X-zyme Brewing Adjunct and its Associated Enzyme Activity
Adjuncts have been used for centuries to improve various qualities of beer. Enzyme adjuncts work by facilitating specific chemical reactions to attain results that would normally take much longer or not be possible at all ...
The Structural and Energetic Properties of O-HCl Complexes
Previous work in the Phillips group explored substituent and matrix effects on hydrogen bond strength in N--HCl systems (NH3–HCl, CH3CN–HCl, fluoropyridine–HCl). The HCl band in CH3CN–HCl shifts to lower frequency, reflecting ...
Investigating the Electrogenesis of Methylobacterium Radiotolerans : Using Bacteria to Conduct Electricity - Bioelectrocatalysis
Electrochemistry is the study of reduction and oxidation chemical (redox) reactions. Electrodes are used in various solutions and a current is run through them. Changes in the current are then measured and graphed producing ...
Induced Chiral Mesophases from Achiral Naphthoate Derivatives in Self-Assembled Systems
The enhanced ordering arrangement of liquid crystals has been documented for well over a century, but the increase in popularity of inducible mesophases has emerged as a leading optioelectronic material. Applications ...
