Developing a simple, general, and isothermal self-replicating system is one of the key requirements for a simplified detection platform for nucleic acid sequences specific to a disease causing microrganism. One of the challenges in achieving nucleic-acid templated isothermal amplification is that...
The Design, Synthesis and Evaluation of Multivalent Heterobifunctional Ligands Specific for Shiga Toxin 1 and Shiga Toxin 2Download
Hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) is a potential life-threatening condition caused by infection with Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli O157:H7. There are two major types of Shiga toxins, namely, Shiga toxin 1 (Stx1) and Shiga toxin 2 (Stx2), of which, Stx2 is clinically most closely associated...
Snow samples were collected in the Athabasca Oil Sands region of northeastern Alberta in mid-January and late February 1981. The snow depth was measured and snow cores were taken at .60 sites around the oil sands plants. Snow sample collectors were set out at six of the sites in mid-January and...
The work presented herein is focused on the synthesis and characterization of inorganic materials for potential use in electronic and photovoltaic applications. Platinum containing complexes of the form LxPt(SC4H2Br)2 (x = 1, L = dppe, dppp; x = 2, L = PBu3, PAr3), were synthesized using...
Germanium nanomaterials have many potential applications based on their size-tunable optical and electronic properties, for example in photodetectors, photovoltaics and non-volatile memory. In this work, the synthesis of Ge nanoparticles by two different methods based on tailorability through the...
Some chemical and physical properties of soil materials associated with the reclamation of mined tar sands areasDownload
This document consists of two tables providing chemical and physical properties of soil, peat, overburden, spent sand and lean tar sand from Syncrude and Suncor.
Soils of permanent sample plots were investigated to provide baseline data for research related to monitoring of terrestrial ecosystems. More specifically, the objective of this project was to provide information on the kinds, characteristics, and distribution of soils in 16 permanent sample...
SEM Images of Block Copolymer Templated Patterns from PS-b-P2VP on Silicon with Platinum for Testing with ADAblock
SEM Images of Block Copolymer Templated Patterns from PS-b-P2VP on Silicon with Platinum for Testing with ADAblockDownload
Scanning electron microscope (SEM) images of patterns derived from polystyrene-block-poly(2-vinylpyridine), where the poly(2-vinylpyridine) domains replaced with platinum metal. All samples were annealed for 20 minutes at 200 degrees celsius. Polymers used include PS(23.6k)-b-P2VP(10.4k),...
Regional and local controls of surface water chemistry in the Boreal Plain and Shield transition of CanadaDownload
The Western Boreal Forest exhibits complex hydrogeology juxtaposed with rapid resource development. Predicting surface water chemistry to assess the influence of landuse and climate change is needed. The research purpose was to test if a global model (Gibbs), used to assess water chemistry...
