Studying the interface between DNA and inorganic nanoparticles to control shape and anisotropicity (2015-07-08)Nanomaterials with their unique optical, electrical and chemical properties are promising candidates for various applications ranging from catalysis to biomedicine. To realize the full potential of nanomaterials, it is ...
I. Facile preparation of ortho-fluorophenols from non-aromatic precursors and investigation of applications to fluorine-18 labeling II. Resin-supported silyl ester precursors for kit-like radiolabeling with fluorine-18 (2015-07-01)Molecular imaging is a technique that can be used to visualize complex biochemical processes without perturbing living organisms, and it has been playing increasingly important roles for the early detection of disease ...
(2015-06-17)PAC-1 is an ortho-hydroxy-N-acylhydrazone that induces apoptosis by chelation of antiapoptotic labile zinc, relieving zinc-mediated inhibition of procaspase-3. Favorable results from cell culture and in vivo experiments ...
(2015-07-17)The first half of this thesis (Chapter 2) described the development of a fluoride-promoted conjugate addition of sulfur-stabilized carbanion nucleophiles to α,β-unsaturated ketones and esters. This reaction was achieved ...
(2015-07-17)Mechanical action can produce dramatic physical and mechanochemical effects when the energy is spatially or temporally concentrated. An important example of such phenomena in solids is the mechanical initiation of explosions, ...
