Modeling of the Gamma-Glutamyl Carboxylase Reaction
The purpose of this study was to discuss the results of this computation study about modeling the gamma-glutamyl carboxylase reaction, which is responsible for clotting factors in the blood.
Exploring the Role of Distant Domain Dynamics in Substrate Binding of Escherichia Coli Prolyl-tRNA Synthetase
Our results demonstrate that the presence of the INS is critical to provide the required energy barrier for the substrate to be bound to the catalytic core, instead of getting spontaneously hydrolyzed.
Synthesis of Smart Polymer PEG-PDMAEMA and Determination of Cloud Point
The purpose of this study was to exmaine the synthesis of smart polymers, including PEG-PDMAEMA as well as cloud point.
Investigation of Student Attitudes and Understanding in General Chemistry
This project aims to analyze the state of the current Chemistry 103 lab manual in order to understand the demands place on entry-level chemistry students.
A Computational Study of Complexes Relevant to the Mechanism of the Friedel-Crafts Reaction
The purpose of this study was to find out the structural and bonding properties of the intermediates in the Friedel-Crafts reactions.
Synthesis and Comparison of Various 6-aryldibenzo[b,d]pyrylium salts
Our objective is to synthesize different 6-aryldibenzo [b,d]pyrylium salts. By varying the R groups, we can examine the communication between electron donors and acceptors across extended ring systems.
Synthesis, Characterization, and Testing of PEG-PDMAEMA Diblock Smart Polymers
In order to determine if PEG-PDMAEMA serves as both a polymer and a surfactant in EOR, testing of how viscosity and interfacial tension change of the aqueous PEG-PDMAEMA solution is needed. This can predict its ability ...
Janus Nanoparticle Formation Via Regioselective Ligand Exchange Reactions at Soft Interfaces
The ligand introduced during Janus formation could exchange with the cross-linker, reducing film integrity, and allowing for rotation and diffusion into liquid phases. To reduce this risk, we sought to take advantage oft ...
A Computational Study of IR Frequency Shifts in CH3CN-HCI
We are interested in the effects of bulk, condensed-phase media on the structural properties of molecular complexes, with an eye toward systems that change structure when the chemical environment is altered.
