Fall 2020 Seminar Series

Speaker: Rohin Biswas (Rutgers- New Brunswick)

Date: 10 Dec 2020 Graduate Student Title: Water-Soluble Fullerene Derivatives for Biological Applications Abstract: The discovery of fullerene by Kroto and Smalley in 1985 has led to decades of research on using fullerene as a template for various applications, from energy to biomedical applications. Also, from a structural standpoint, the unique spherical-shaped structure consisting of … Read More

Speaker: Katherine Lloyd (Rutgers- Newark)

Date: 19 Nov 2020 Title: Helical peptides design for molecular dipoles functionalization of wide band gap oxides Abstract: In the renewable energy field for semiconductors, energy alignment between the frontier orbitals of an organic chromophore and the band edges of a wide band gap metal oxide substrate is a key factor influencing charge transfer efficiencies … Read More

Speaker: Ashley Bernstein (Rutgers- New Brunswick)

Date: 12 Nov 2020 Title: ssNMR as a Tool to Examine Lipid Bilayers PhD Candidate, Nieuwkoop Group Lipid bilayers are the surface at which many important processes, such as protein binding and ion diffusion occur, and yet they are not well understood. Solid-state NMR (ssNMR) is a powerful and flexible technique that is well-equipped to … Read More
