Theoretical Investigations of Dense Hydride and Complex Intermetallics
Density functional theory (DFT) calculations were performed in order to elucidate the properties which direct and control molecular and crystallographic systems under both ambient pressure and extreme pressure conditions. ...
Atoms in Action: Observing Atomic Motion with Dynamic in situ X-ray Diffraction
Metal-organic framework (MOF) materials are rich in both structural diversity and application. These materials are comprised of metal atoms or clusters which are connected in a three-dimensional polymer-like network by ...
Novel Biosynthesis Acceptors and Inhibitors of Glycosylation: Studies of Leukocyte-Endothelial Cell Adhesion Interactions
The study of glycoconjugates is essential as the carbohydrates in organisms are involved in cell development, cell signaling, cell-to-cell interactions, cancer tumorigenesis and metastasis, inflammation, and infectious ...
Field-directed Transport and Self-assembly of Magnetic Nanoparticles with Applications
This dissertation includes five chapters. Chapter 1 contains a general introduction to the fundamentals of magnetism, magnetic nanoparticles and their applications. In Chapter 2, analytic solutions of magnetic fields are ...
Synthesis and Self-assembly of Amphiphilic Bottlebrush Block-Copolymers
Using both the ‘Grafting from’ and ‘Grafting through’ approaches, well-defined bottlebrush block copolymers were synthesized. Resulting macromolecules were characterized by GPC and 1 H NMR, the self-assembled into ...
Novel Polyether Based Membrane Materials for CO2/N 2 Separation
Carbon capture, utilization and sequestration (CCUS) is an important approach to mitigate CO2 emission to the air. Membrane technology has been widely explored for CO2 separation and capture from coal power plant derived ...
