Kathleen Riley is the recipient of the 2021 Colonial Metal George Benvengo Memorial Student Award. The award recognizes a student’s work in performing fundamental or applied research focusing on any precious metals.
We are pleased to announce the promotion of Thomas Freeman from teaching assistant professor to teaching associate professor.
Through participation in NIIMBL and engagement with partners like NC State’s Biomanufacturing Training and Education Center (BTEC), UNC aims to continue developing technologies and innovations that meet the needs of North Carolina’s biopharmaceutical industry.
The ligand-to-metal charge transfer (LMCT) transitions of [Re(dmpe)3]2+ (dmpe = bis-1,2-(dimethylphosphino)ethane) were interrogated using UV/Vis absorbance spectroscopy, photoluminescence spectroscopy, and time-dependent density functional theory.
Here we elucidate the fundamental factors controlling the two binding modes and determining which is favored for a given metal–ligand system, using both quantitative density functional theory (DFT) and qualitative molecular orbital (MO) analyses.
We explore a series of regioregular polythiophenes having TCSs and hexyl side chains by varying the ratio of different side chains, from 0 mol % TCSs to 100 mol % TCSs at an increment of 20 mol %.
