Organic Syntheses Seminar: Exploring New Methodologies to Enhance Synthetic Efficiency

Seminar: Organic Chemistry | March 14 | 11 a.m.-12 p.m. |  Pitzer Auditorium, 120 Latimer Hall

 Prof. Dawei Ma, State Key Laboratory of Bio-Organic and Natural Products Chemistry, Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry

 College of Chemistry

Discovery of new synthetic methodologies not only prompts diverse synthesis of natural and designed functional molecules, but also leads to more efficient synthesis (step-economical and cost-effective) of known compounds with important functions. In this lecture I will summarize our recent results on methodology development, which include preparation of spiro-fused indolines via intramolecular...   More >

Canceled-illness: Metal-Ligand Chemistry in Multimetallic Nanoparticle Synthesis and Performance: Nano Seminar Series

Seminar | March 17 | 2-3 p.m. | 390 Hearst Memorial Mining Building | Canceled

 Prof. Jill E. Millstone, Univ. of Pittsburgh, Chemistry / ChemE / ME

 Berkeley Nanosciences and Nanoengineering Institute

Metal-ligand chemistry is shown to be a pivotal tool in the control of multimetallic nanoparticle formation, structure, and emergent properties. Specifically, small molecule ligand chemistry is used to mediate the incorporation and distribution of metals in and on discrete, colloidal nanoparticle substrates, as well as modulate their emergent optoelectronic features once formed.

Mechanic Behavior of Architected Nanomaterials: Nano Seminar Series

Seminar | March 17 | 2-3 p.m. | 390 Hearst Memorial Mining Building

 Prof. Xun Wendy Gu, Stanford University, Mechanical Engineering

 Berkeley Nanosciences and Nanoengineering Institute

Many nanomaterials (e.g. graphene, metallic nanowires, and ceramic nanospheres) exhibit extraordinary strength, ductility and flaw tolerance. These nanoscale size effects can be transmitted to the bulk by arranging nanostructures in 3D hierarchical architectures with optimized structural topologies, but these nano-architected structures are challenging to construct using conventional...   More >
