Optical imaging of membrane potentials has become an immensely popular approach to study neuronal activity. Over the past decades, a number of voltage indicators have been introduced including the voltage sensitive fluorescent protein (VSFP) and microbial rhodopsins. However, most of these...
Tuning the Surface Composition, Spatial Arrangement, and Thermal Release Behavior of DNA-Gold NanomaterialsDownload
Combining multiple functions and controlling their relative organization on the surface, as well as controlling the release of payloads will be essential properties of nanomaterials for future medical applications. In this thesis we studied these properties using as a model DNA-gold...
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...
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...
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...
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...
