The electrochemical reduction of para-substituted aryldiazonium cations is a convenient method of introducing chemical functional groups to a surface. The number of conductive surfaces that have been used for this purpose is rapidly expanding. The body of work presented in this thesis will serve...
Cryo-electron microscopy of SERCA interacting with oligomeric phospholamban and oligomeric sarcolipinDownload
In 2007, heart disease was the second leading cause of death in Canadians. In heart muscle cells, calcium (Ca2+) is released from the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) during contraction and must be replenished for relaxation to occur. Three proteins restore Ca2+ to the SR following contraction: the...
Conductive Atomic Force Microscopy Study of Electron Transport Through Diazonium Derived Films and Mixed – Mode Bonded Layers on Gold and Carbon SurfacesDownload
For Molecular Electronics to become a viable replacement or complitment to current elec- tronic devices a fundamental understanding of device operation and functionality is needed. This work explores electron transport through diazonium derived molecular junctions via conductive atomic force...
