Three dimensional nanostructured designs for lithium ion batteries
The reversible electrochemistry and the superior gravimetric and volumetric energy storage capacities of lithium ion batteries (LIBs) have propelled them as the dominant power source for a range of portable electronic ...
Synthesis and application of phosphonate scale inhibitor nanomaterials for oilfield scale control
In this study, several synthesis routes were adopted to prepare nanometer sized metal-phosphonate particles to expand their use in the delivery of phosphonate mineral scale inhibitors into formation porous media for oilfield ...
Studying the Interactions of Biomacromolecular Assemblies with Surfaces Using the Microcantilever Sensor and Quartz Crystal Microbalance
This thesis uses surface sensitive tools to characterize the effect of a solid surface on immobilized biomacromolecules. This includes understanding how the surface can change the affinity of these macromolecules to small ...
Linking a mitotic oscillator to the extracellular environment: the importance of protein network structure and multisite phosphorylation
This thesis work contributes the first vital steps in the development of a biologically based proliferation model to advance a bioartificial tissue regeneration model. Specifically, this work presents a mitotic oscillator ...
In vivo phosphorus-31 and carbon-13 nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy to study cellular metabolism
Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy has emerged as a valuable tool for engineers for noninvasive, real-time studies of cellular metabolism. Two applications of NMR for studying cellular metabolism were investigated in ...
