Colloquium Schedule | Upcoming Events

  1. DNA
    PROTEIN DIMERIZATION PARTNERS ARE DICTATED
    BY THE DNA TARGET, NOT PROTEIN TARGET
    Many genes are regulated by protein hetero- or homodimers. Shin et
    al found that DNA bases outside the protein-DNA recognition target
    determine the protein dimerization partner.
    Shin Group, Molecular Biosystems, January 2017
  2. THE ROLE OF DIMER ASYMMETRY AND
    PROTOMER DYNAMICS IN ENZYME CATALYSIS
    Prosser and coauthor Pai examine a homodimeric enzyme, fluoroacetate
    dehalogenase, which converts a highly toxic pesticide into a harmless
    metabolite, and explore the role of enzyme dynamics in the process.
    Prosser Group, Science, January 2017
  3. Graphical depiction of overall 2D scheme of coated gold microelectrode.
    BIOFOULING-RESISTANT [K+]o SENSOR
    FOR MONITORING EPILEPSY
    A novel approach for in vivo spatio-temporal measurements of [K+]o
    using multichannel monolayer coated gold microelectrodes reveals
    new physiological events not previously seen during seizures in mice.
    Thompson Group, Biosensors, December 2016
  4. SOLAR POWERED REVERSE WATER
    GAS SHIFT REACTION
    The role of defects on the electronic & photocatalytic properties of
    In2O3-x(OH)y NPs for the reverse water-gas shift reaction are revealed,
    a key advance towards efficient catalysts for the CO2 reduction reaction.
    Ozin Group, PNAS, December 2016
  5. Macrocyclization reaction between a linear peptide, an aldehyde and (N-isocyanimino)triphenylphosphorane.
    OXADIAZOLE GRAFTS IN PEPTIDE
    MACROCYCLES
    A new macrocyclization reaction delivers cyclic molecules for
    exploration in drug discovery.
    Yudin Group, Nature Chemistry, December 2016
  6. Figure showing a high degree of bond-selectivity dependent on adsorbate bond alignment.
    BOND SELECTIVE REACTION
    Kelvin Anggara, Kai Huang and Lydie Leung in Polanyi's group
    have shown and explained a hundredfold bond-selectivity in
    electron-induced reaction at a smooth metal surface.
    Polanyi Group, Nature Communications, December 2016
CSC 2017

Awards:

Professors Bob Morris, Scott Prosser and Ian Manners win Royal Chemistry Society Awards.

Professors Bob Morris, Scott Prosser and Ian Manners win Royal Chemistry Society Awards.

We are pleased to announce that Professors Bob Morris, Scott Prosser and Ian Manners have each received a 2017 Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) Award. Prof. Morris has been awarded the RSC’s Inorganic Mechanisms Award. This award recognizes those who improve our understanding of reaction mechanisms in inorganic chemistry. Prof. Prosser is the recipient of the RSC’s Jeremy Knowles Award. This award is presented to those who promote the importance of inter- and multi-disciplinary research between chemistry and the life sciences. Prof. Manners has been awarded the 2017 De Gennes Prize for outstanding and exceptional work in the field of materials chemistry.

This Molecular World – Learn How Chemistry is Proving to be the Solution Outside of the Lab

This Molecular World – Learn How Chemistry is Proving to be the Solution Outside of the Lab

When we think of chemistry, it's not unusual to think of lab coats, beakers and Bunsen burners, but on June 1, the speakers of This Molecular World will tell us how chemistry is having a global impact. From healthcare for refugees and crises in aquaculture to reversing blindness and even the social implication of fake news and pseudoscience, these world class chemists are working to solve some of the world’s biggest problems.
