Tracer Development for the Molecular Imaging of Breast Cancer: Synthesis and Biological Evaluation of C-3 Modified 2,5-Anhydro-D-mannitol Derivatives as Potential Tracer MoleculesDownload
Mammography is the most frequently used imaging method for the detection of breast cancer. Despite the key role of mammography in the breast cancer detection, false-negative diagnosis by mammograms ranges from 4 to 34%. Positron emission tomography (PET), a tracer based molecular imaging method...
This thesis focuses on the experimental and theoretical study of various rare-earth transition-metal germanides that contain three or four components. Ternary and quaternary germanides were synthesized through various methods, including direct reaction of the elements, arc-melting, and flux...
As the developing world industrializes, humanity needs to produce a greater fraction of its energy via renewable resources in order to alleviate the scarcity of fossil fuels as well as environmental damage from the exhaust of these fuels. However, renewable sources of energy tend to be...
Transition Metal Oxide Nanoparticles Decorated Carbon Nanomaterials as Earth-Abundant Electrocatalysts for Zinc-Air BatteriesDownload
As awareness of global warming increases and the geopolitically influenced energy supply fluctuates, the global economy is in dire need of a transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources. Although renewable energies are sustainable and have favorable environmental impacts, they suffer...
In predicting oil and gas recovery, researchers develop models primarily focusing on macro- or milli-scale flows by applying Navier-Stokes types solutions and no-slip boundary conditions. They compare or cross-check their models to known experimental results available in the literature for larger...
Triplet-Triplet Energy Transfer in Organic Synthesis: Efforts toward a Chiral Lewis Acid Catalyzed De Mayo Reaction and Investigations of a Photoactive Ruthenium(polypyridyl)-NHC ComplexDownload
The fundamentals of energy transfer catalysis and its application in [2+2] photocycloadditions are thoroughly discussed. The De Mayo reaction is a UV light-promoted [2+2] photocycloaddition between enolic β-diketones and olefins that has been used to form α-substituted 1,5-diketones. Its...
