  • Bulky Aryloxy Catalyst Precursors for CO2 Reduction 

    Price, Clint
    The search for a good catalyst for CO2 reduction using triethylsilane has been a recent research topic in our lab. Since CO2 is a greenhouse gas, its conversion into something useful on an industry level scale while removing ...
  • Synthesis of Deuterated-(C9)-11-cis-Retinal 

    Nascimento, Carolina; Faylough, Samira; Guruge, Charitha; Struts, Andrey; Brown, Michael F.; Nesnas, Nasri
    It has been shown that the dimerization of 2 vitamin A molecules with an Ethanolamine molecule leads to the formation of a molecule labeled as A2E. The latter is a phototoxic molecule and has been shown to be a major ...
  • Phytotoxicity of Silver Nitrate and Silver Nanoparticles on Elodea canadensis 

    Bernas, Leonard
    This project demonstrates that Elodea canadensis, a common aquatic plant, can absorb silver cations and silver nanoparticles from its environment. E. canadensis was chosen for study because it is a model aquatic plant for ...
  • Host-Guest specificity of Cyclodextrins Using Direct Electronic Measurements 

    Byrd, Chanel; Guruge, Charitha; Xie, Hui; Olson, Joel A.; Nesnas, Nasri
    Cyclodextrin, a cyclic oligosaccharide, has a hydrophobic center that binds to different ligands making it a highly attractive molecule for several industries. It is the goal of this study to establish a process in which ...
