|[2+2] dimerization of cinnamylidenemalonic acid
||The original goal of the proposed research project was to crystallize a chiral host molecule with a diene-containing quest molecule to produce stereoselective molecules in a solid state reaction. These topochemical reactions occur within a crystallin...
|Structural and chemical changes in the topochemical 1,4-polymerization of 3,4-bis(methylene)hexanedioic acid
||Since the discovery of the topochemical 1,4-polymerization of 3,4-bis(methylene)hexanedioic acid (BMHA), the first reported polymerization of an internally substituted butadiene, an objective of our research group has been to characterize the chemica...
|Synthesis, characterization, and luminescent properties of Eu³? dipyridophenazine functionalized complexes for potential bio-imaging applications
||Luminescent properties of lanthanide complexes possess unique characteristics that makethem good candidates for possible bioimaging agents and have inspired research initiatives tofurther explore these materials. However, the toxicity of these metals...
|Synthesis and characterization of time-resolved fluorescence probes for the potential detection and improved study of melanoma cancer
||A multi-part fluorescent probe was designed for the development of new clinical tools for the detection and treatment of melanoma skin cancer. It has been proposed that the addition of a fluorescent tag to a melanocyte stimulating hormone would creat...
