Steric and Catalytic Effects of Alcohols on the Transamination of Napthalimides
This experiment describes a systematic study of the effects of the size of alcohols on the transamination of N-(3-chlorophenyl)-4-chloro-1,8- naphthalimide.
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.
When Push Comes to Shove : Limitations of Hydrogen Bonded Liquid Crystal/Inhibitor Networks
A liquid crystal is state of matter that simultaneously displays properties of both a liquid and a solid. Liquid crystals have applications in liquid crystal displays (LCDs) and optical imaging technology. Liquid crystals ...
An IR and Computational Study of Pyridine-HCI and Its Fluorinated Analogs
Condensed phase effects on structure/bonding H-bonded complexes, e.g. HN-HCI, CHCN-HCI. A key issue is how medium effects affect extent of proton transfer. We are exploring pyridine and its fluorinated analogs as N ...
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.
Optimizing the Sensitivity of Particulate Silica Quantification by Molybdenum Blue Absorbance Spectrometry
The purpose of this study was to develop a novel analytical method for quantifying respirable, airborne silicon containing particles.
Flipping the General Chemistry Laboratory : Increasing Student Engagement by Enhancing Self-Directed Learning
The goal of this study is two-fold: to gather information about the impact of flipped and traditional teaching modes on student understanding of course material, as well measuring students' attitudes about chemistry. Our ...
Synthesis of Mucin Peptide Epitopes
The MUC-1 mucin is a heavily glycosylated transmembrane protein found on the apical surface of the epithelial cells that contains a short cytoplasmic end and a long extracellular domain consisting of multiple 20-amino acid ...
Synthesis and Characterization of a Reversible and Tunable Smart Polymer
Polymers are made of covalently bonded repeat units, called monomers, which make up long chains. The structure can be controlled to achieve a diblock copolymer with two different repeat units connected in blocks. “Smart” ...
