Development of Microfluidic Devices for Studying Protein Conformational Dynamics via HDX/TRESI-MS
Studies of protein conformational dynamics can lead to a deeper understanding of biological functions of proteins, protein/protein interactions, catalysis and allostery. Most of the conformers involved in biological pathways ...
The Synthesis of Solar Cell Dyes
In the recent years, solar energy has become of great interest due to the diminishing supply of the fossil and nuclear fuels and their environmental effects. Solar energy is the most abundant and accessible renewable energy ...
Synthesis, Characterization and Reactivity Study of Bis (Imino)-N-Heterocyclic Carbene Transition Metal Complexes
Three generations of the first 1,3-bis(imino) N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) ligand precursors were synthesized, isolated and characterized. The synthetic methodologies of the ligand precursors were controlled by the iminic ...
Synthesis of Electron Deficient N-heterocyclic-carbenes and Activity of Imidazol-2-imine Thioureate Ligand on Group 10 Transition Metals
Previous work in the Lavoie group has resulted in the synthesis of new imidazol-2-imine ligands that have low activity towards ethylene polymerization due to their electron rich nature. In an attempt to alleviate this an ...
Effect of Saline and Non-Specific Insulin Binding on the Phase Behavior of Poly (Ethylene Glycol)-Grafted Phosphoethanolamine-Succinyl Model Membranes
Poly (ethylene glycol)-grafted membrane-mimetic surfaces bearing negatively charged phospholipid headgroups have gained significant attention due to their promising contributions in numerous biomedical applications. The ...
Nocturnal Measurements of HONO, NO2 and NO3 by Differential Optical Absorption Spectroscopy in Polluted Marine and Urban Atmospheres
Nitrogen oxides are ubiquitous throughout the lower atmosphere and significantly affect the chemistry of the atmosphere, air quality, and climate. A data-set obtained using differential optical absorption spectroscopy ...
