A qualitative look at the thermodynamics of ternary phase diagrams
In 2014, Collins’ research group embarked on experiments using Perturbed Angular Correlation (PAC) spectroscopy to measure interactions between solute atoms in ternary alloys. PAC requires a probe atom, 111In, making the ...
Novel process for producing value-added lignin-based chemicals from alkaline effluent of chemical treatment of lignocellulosic biomass
The invention discloses a novel process to make hydrophobic interaction between lignin and ABA-block-copolymers, providing solubilization or encapsulation of the lignin in block copolymer micellar systems and utilizing the ...
ELUCIDATING THE RATE LIMITING COMPONENTS OF STARCH BIOSYNTHESIS
Starch is used as main carbohydrate and energy reserve where it accumulates and stored in plastids. In cereal grains, there are three potential rate limiting steps of starch biosynthesis: production, transport and utilization ...
Rheology and Conductivity of Phloem
The Pressure Flow Hypothesis, presented in 1930 by Ernst Münch, is the most accepted model for photoassimilate translocation by the phloem of plants. Net photosynthetic sugar production occurs in source tissues, often ...

Synthesis and Characterization of New Unsymmetrical Diglycolamides for Trivalent Lanthanide Metal Extraction
Twelve new unsymmetrical diglycolamide (UDGA) ligands have been synthesized as solvent extraction reagents for trivalent lanthanide ions from highly acidic nitrate media. The asymmetry in the extractant design arises from ...
Rational Discretionary Risk: The Judicial Risk x Sentence Model for Sex Offenders
Given that sex crimes are considered to be dangerous offenses and are perceived to have a high risk of reoffending, sex offenders are subject to disproportionality harsh treatment in criminal institutions. Sentence disparity ...
Sensor development for the nuclear fuel cycle: electrochemistry, spectroelectrochemistry, spectroscopy, and chemometric analysis
Fast, robust, and cost-effective means of detecting various species in complex solution environments are needed throughout the nuclear fuel cycle. Several techniques have the potential to meet this need and this manuscript ...
The Application of Electrospray Mass Spectrometry to Solution Speciation: An Integrated Experimental and Computational Approach
Electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) is a promising technique for the study of metal:ligand solution speciation. While ESI-MS is frequently used qualitatively with some success, quantitative use of the technique ...
