Long-lived Luminescent Metal Complexes for Small Molecules Sensing Application

Monday, July 28, 2014, 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Kewei Huang, Doctoral Candidate

The study of long lived emissive probes has been a hot issue within the past few years, since they can improve the sensitivity and accurate of detections by combined with time-resolved photoluminescence spectroscopy (TRPS). Ruthenium and iridium comp more  »

A Journey through the Arabidopsis thaliana Genome: Discovering the Origins of Novel Triterpene Metabolites

Tuesday, June 3, 2014, 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Dorianne Castillo-Rivera, Doctoral Candidate

Plants produce a large variety of natural products, including over 20,000 different triterpenoids. Triterpenoid functions range from roles as membrane sterols and hormones in primary metabolism, to defense compounds in secondary metabolism. Beyond th more  »
