New ternary rare-earth antimonides and germanides: bonding, structures, and physical propertiesDownload
This thesis focuses on the synthesis, structures, and physical properties of ternary rare-earth antimonides and germanides. These ternary compounds exhibit diverse polyanionic substructures with classical and non-classical Sb–Sb bonding, Ge–Ge bonding, or both. The Zintl-Klemm concept and band...
Initial Excited-state Structural Dynamics of Deuterated and Methylated Uracil Derivatives by Resonance Raman SpectroscopyDownload
Nucleic acids are biological macromolecules constructed of purine (guanine and adenine) and pyrimidine (cytosine, thymine and uracil) nucleobases. The interaction of ultraviolet (UV) light with pyrimidine nucleobases leads to various photoproducts, such as cyclobutane pyrimidine dimers (CPDs),...
Poly (N-isopropylacrylamide) Microgel-Based Electroresponsive Optical Devices and Anisotropic ParticlesDownload
Stimuli-responsive hydrogels, especially those with nanometer/micrometer-scale dimensions, have attracted intense research interest due to their many promising applications. Poly (N-isopropylacrylamide) (pNIPAm)-based hydrogel particles (nanogels and microgels) have been by far the most widely...
A series of phosphoranimide-supported first-row transition metal clusters were prepared, structurally characterized, and investigated for catalytic hydrogenolysis of carbon-heteroatom bonds. Homoleptic heterocubane clusters, as well as two-dimensional bi- and tetranuclear compounds of manganese,...
First-Row Transition Metal-Mediated Reactions: Catalytic Ester Hydrogenolysis, Aerobic Alkane Oxidation, and [5+2] Ring-Expansion ReactionsDownload
The research described in this dissertation focuses on first-row transition metal catalyzed and mediated organic reactions. The first part of the thesis involves the exploration of the catalytic reactivity of phosphoranimide-supported tetrametallic nickel and cobalt clusters, while the second...
The work described within this thesis details explorations into the area of molecular luminogens, in particular using zirconium-mediated coupling to access novel classes of color tunable emitters based on germanium, tellurium, and butadienes. Chapter 2 features new class of air-stable phosphors...
This thesis describes the studying of electrospray ionization (ESI) process and the application of the direct ESI-MS assay to study noncovalent carbohydrate-protein interactions in vitro. Protein unfolding induced by ESI process was first investigated. It is proposed that the Coulombic repulsion...
