Engineering Escherichia coli for the production of polyketide-based platform chemicals
The current chemical industry produces a diverse array of industrial chemicals from a handful of highly reduced byproducts (termed "platform chemicals") derived from oil refining. However, petroleum is a non-renewable ...
Novel approaches for the production of fuels and chemicals in Escherichia coli
Volatility of oil prices along with major concerns about climate change, oil supply security and depleting reserves have sparked renewed interest in the production of biofuels and biochemicals. While the carbohydrate portion ...
Solvothermal Synthesis and Supported Catalysis of Polyanion-derived Metal Oxide Nanoparticles
Supported metal oxides (SMOs) are important catalytic materials that find numerous applications in important industrial processes. Improving the structural properties of SMOs is a challenging objective due to material ...
Bilayer Approaches for Nanoparticle Phase Transfer
Nanoparticles (NPs) are often synthesized in organic solvents due to advantages of superior size and shape control obtainable in a non-polar environment. However, many applications featuring NPs require them to be in aqueous ...
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 ...
Thermodynamics of confined colloid-polymer mixtures
Recent advances have elucidated the behavior of colloids and polymer systems in the archety pal three dimensions. However, these systems are ill-understood when confined to two dimensions. Using experimental techniques ...
