Seminar | March 6 | 11 a.m.-12 p.m. | 120 Latimer Hall
One of the main principles underlying fluorescent sensors is based on PET (photoinduced electron transfer), according to which a switching on of fluorescence in response to chemical1 and biochemical2 analytes can be designed. Since its generalization in Colombo, Sri Lanka, it has now grown to involve 350 laboratories around the world. Some of these sensor systems are serving in critical care... More >

Alkene ozonolysis is a primary oxidation pathway for alkenes emitted into the troposphere and also an important source of atmospheric hydroxyl radicals. Alkene ozonolysis takes place on a reaction path with multiple minima and barriers along the way to OH products. In particular, a key reaction intermediate, known as the Criegee intermediate, R1R2COO, had eluded detection until very recently. In... More >

Ive mostly evaded the political... More >
