Amanda Smythers recognized in The TarHelium for mentorship and research excellence

Amanda Smythers, second-year graduate student, was featured in the TarHelium for her remarkable accomplishments in research and mentorship.


Proteomic response of Escherichia coli to a membrane lytic and iron chelating truncated Amaranthus tricolor defensin

This study highlights the utility of plant defensin γ-core motif synthetic analogs for characterization of novel defensin activity.

Electrodeposition in aqueous nanoreactors

One exciting subset of single-entity electrochemistry, and the topic of this review, is the study of reactions in nanoreactors of subfemtoliter (10−15 L) volumes with a particular focus on nanoparticle synthesis.

Coating small-diameter ePTFE vascular grafts with tunable poly(diol-co-citrate-co-ascorbate) elastomers to reduce neointimal hyperplasia

This work is focused on the development of poly(diol-co-citrate-co-ascorbate) (POCA) elastomers with tunable properties for coating ePTFE vascular grafts.

Catalytic Dehydrogenation of Alkanes by PCP-Pincer Iridium Complexes Using Proton and Electron Acceptors

Here, we report the use of pincer-ligated iridium complexes to achieve alkane dehydrogenation by proton-coupled electron transfer, using pairs of oxidants and bases as proton and electron acceptors.
