Pirkey Lectureship Seminar – “Mesoporous silica nanoparticle supported lipid bilayers (protocells) for individual cell targeting and CRISPR delivery” by Jeff Brinker

Host: Dr. John Ekerdt

ABSTRACT:

Mesoporous silica nanoparticle-supported lipid bilayers (protocells) are an emerging class of nanocarriers that synergistically combine the advantages of mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs), including tunable size, shape, and pore characteristics that facilitate high loading capacities, with the advantages of liposomes such as enhanced circulation, ease of synthesis, biocompatibility, flexible formulations, and … Read the rest »

ChE Seminar – “Eliminating Needless Chlorine in Industry – The Direct Synthesis of H2O2 and ‘Green'” by David Flaherty

Host: C. Buddie Mullins

ABSTRACT:

2O2 is an environmentally-benign and selective oxidant useful for epoxidations and bleaching, yet, its use is limited because the anthraquinone oxidation process is viable only at very large scales. Currently, many oxidation processes use chlorine-based oxidants (Cl2, HOCl) at a global rate of 63·109Read the rest »

ChE Seminar – “The oxidative evolution of organic carbon in the atmosphere” by Jesse Kroll

Host: Lea Hildebrandt Ruiz

ABSTRACT:

Organic species in the Earth’s atmosphere play a central role in many processes important to human health, ecosystem health, and global climate: they can serve as pollutants, they influence atmospheric oxidant levels, and their oxidation products include secondary pollutants such as ozone and secondary organic aerosol. However our ability to … Read the rest »

ChE Seminar – Dr. Chinedum Osuji (Associate Professor of Chemical & Environmental Engineering, Yale University)

Host: Dr. Venkat Ganesan

ABSTRACT:

Self-assembly of block copolymers and small molecule mesogens gives rise to a rich phase behavior as a function of temperature, composition, and other relevant parameters. The ability to precisely control their chemical functionality combined with the readily tunable characteristic length scales (~1-100 nm) of their self-assembled mesophases position these systems … Read the rest »

Seminar – “Translation of Fundamental Chemistry to Materials Designed For Advanced Applications” by Karen Wooley

ABSTRACT:

Organic polymer materials, commonly thought of as plastics, are of critical importance to every aspect of human life, from the clothes that we wear to the computers that we use to the tires on which we drive to the devices through which medicines are administered. Due to the large, macromolecular size of polymers, there … Read the rest »
