Meeting of the Princeton ACS Section:“1D Lepidocrocite Titania-based Nanomaterials, Their Diverse Morphologies and Exceptional Properties”

Frick Chemistry Laboratory, Taylor Auditorium, Princeton University

Meeting of the Princeton ACS Section Tuesday, March 12, 2024 Professor Michel. W. Barsoum Drexel University, Philadelphia, PA “1D Lepidocrocite Titania-based Nanomaterials, Their Diverse Morphologies and Exceptional Properties” Frick Chemistry Laboratory, Taylor Auditorium, Princeton University Mixer (in Atrium) 6:30 pm; Lecture 7:00 pm   Abstract: Recently, we converted 15 binary and ternary titanium carbides, nitrides, borides, phosphides, and silicides into lepidocrocite-based, one dimensional, 1D, sub-nanometer nanofilaments, NFs, ≈ 5x7 Å in cross-section by reacting them with a tetramethylammonium hydroxide, TMAH, aqueous solution at ≈ 85 °C range for tens of hours. In some cases, the conversion is 100 % precluding the need for centrifuges, filters, etc. We currently routinely make 100 g batches in a lab setting. Depending on with what and the order the reaction products are washed, the 1D NFs self-assemble into loose, spaghetti-shaped fibers, ≈ 30 nm in diameter, fully inorganic TiO2 gels, pseudo 2D or porous mesoscopic particles. In all cases, the fundamental building block is 1D lepidocrocite NFs, ≈ 3 nm long, that self-assemble into the aforementioned morphologies. At this time, we believe that our materials are the only thermodynamically stable 1D NFs in water, with important implications in photo- and chemical catalysis. The production

NMR Seminar: POKY, The Software Suite for NMR Studies and More

MS Teams

Abstract NMR spectroscopy is a powerful technique for molecular studies. In biomolecular research, it offers a wide range of unique approaches, from analyzing small compounds to investigating macromolecules, and from examining purified samples to studying complex mixtures. NMR analysis is primarily conducted in dry laboratory settings. Once the sample is prepared and inserted into the spectrometer, nearly all processes are performed using computers. When it comes to spectral analysis of biomacromolecules, such as proteins and nucleic acids, Sparky has been the gold standard program for a few decades. Donald Kneller from the Tack Kuntz group and Tom Goddard from the Tom Ferrin group were early contributors to UCSF-Sparky in the 90s. I took over from the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) and developed NMRFAM-Sparky at the National Magnetic Resonance Facility at Madison (NMRFAM) until 2020 before I moved to the University of Colorado Denver. Since then, my group has developed the new program, POKY. POKY succeeds all the previous capabilities while provides new and enhanced features, leveraging the recent AI revolution. It is highly automated and efficient, covering assignment, peak picking, relaxation, dynamics, metabolomics, and small compound analysis. Additionally, POKY incorporates self-teaching capabilities. We have identified six different challenges,
