The Influence of Charged Xerogel Side Chains on the Settlement and Adhesion of Ectocarpus crouaniorum and Ulva linza
A series of five xerogel coatings were prepared to evaluate the influence of charged surface moieties on the settlement and adhesion strength of Ectocarpus crouaniorum and Ulva linza. The coatings were prepared from mixtures ...
Calculation of Magnetic Properties of Paramagnetic Molecules
While calculation of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) parameters and spectra are routinely done for diamagnetic organic compounds, calculation of paramagnetic NMR (PNMR), in particular for compounds containing heavy elements, ...
Several Theorems in Error Correcting Codes
This work collects together several problems in coding theory along with their solutions.
Electronic structure imperfections and chemical bonding at graphene interfaces
The manifestation of novel phenomena upon scaling to finite size has inspired a paradigm shift in materials science that takes advantage of the distinctive electrical and physical properties of nanomaterials. Remarkably, ...
Efficient injection of spin-polarized electrons from manganese arsenide contacts into aluminum gallium arsenide/gallium arsenide spin LEDs
In this thesis we describe two spectroscopic projects project on semiconductor heterostructures, as well as putting together and testing a micro-photoluminescence/7 tesla magnet system for the study of micron size ...
Cellular and molecular mechanisms in myocardial regeneration
Heart failure is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Currently, the only curative therapy for heart failure is heart transplantation and therefore alternative therapies are needed. Mesenchymal stem ...
Development and validation of a liquid chromatography- mass spectrometry method for analysis of oxysterols in human plasma
Background: Oxysterols are hydroxy, keto or epoxy oxidation products of cholesterol formed by enzymatic action or auto-oxidation. Oxysterols have been shown to have several biological activities including regulation of ...
Open source chemistry: Creating tools for automated structure prediction, modeling, visualization, and analysis
Advances in high performance computing are transforming the field of theoretical chemistry. Supercomputing hardware is becoming faster and cheaper, and we are at a point where accurate simulations of non-trivial chemical ...
Characterization of Hda-beta clamp functions beyond the regulatory inactivation of DnaA in Escherichia coli
The ATP-bound form of the Escherichia coli DnaA protein binds 'DnaA boxes' present in the origin of replication ( oriC ) and operator sites of several genes, including dnaA, to co-ordinate their transcription with initiation ...
The installation of a pyrrolidine group to a phenolic ring-one of the key steps to the total synthesis of strychnopentamine and isostrychnopentamine
The increase of multi-drug resistance of P. falciparum, the major cause of malaria, has been threatening the world public health especially developing countries. Thus, new development of drugs to offer as alternative ...
