The memory artists by Jeffrey Moore( Book )

45 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in 9 languages and held by 722 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Noel Burun has synesthesia and hypermnesia: he sees words in vibrant explosions of colors and shapes, which collide and commingle to form a memory so bitingly perfect that he can remember everything, from the 1001 stories of The Arabian Nights to the color of his bib as a toddler. But for all his mnemonic abilities, he is confronted every day with a reality that is as sad as it is ironic: his beloved mother, Stella, is stricken with Alzheimer's disease, her memory slowly slipping into the quicksands of oblivion. The Memory Artists follows Noel, helped by a motley cast of friends, on his quest to find a cure for his mother's affliction. The results are at the same time darkly funny, quirkily inventive, and very moving. Alternating between third-person narratives and the diaries of Noel and Stella, Jeffrey Moore weaves a story filled with fantastic characters and a touch of suspense that gets at the very heart of what it means to remember and forget, and that is a testament to the uplifting power of family and friendship."--Publisher's description

Nile Nightingale is on the run. Fleeing across the border to rural Quebec, he seeks refuge at an abandoned church when his junked-up, over-stimulated mind takes in that he has just witnessed a body drop -- in a bloody sack tied with Christmas ribbon. The contents, unconscious but still alive, turn out to be fifteen-year-old Celeste Jonqueres, who has been beaten and slashed, like wild game, to slowly bleed out. From his hideout, as he nurses his patient back from the brink and begins to face his own life, he pieces together what he has tumbled into. Animal rights activists Celeste and her beloved grandmother have taken on a vicious poaching ring, operating from Quebec's Laurentian Mountains and dealing in animal parts for the international market, with the collusion of corrupt officials. Her grandmother has died suspiciously. And now that Nile has saved Celeste from the dead, the poachers and thier accomplices in this small town have taken notice and are cautiously, but inexorably, closing in

On the last stroke of November, as Nile Nightingale examines a church with a faded for-sale sign, he is startled by a gun-racked pickup barrelling down the country lane. With a sack roped to the roof, it veers past the church and comes to a spinning stop beside the cemetery in the back. Silence, then a thud. With that sound ends the peace he expected to find when he fled the addictions, exhaustions, and legal problems of home by heading north, illegally, into Quebec's Laurentian Mountains. Inside the burlap sack is the bloodied but breathing body of a teenage girl. Against his better judgement, Nile resolves to treat her wounds and find those who left her for dead. The Extinction Club is a powerful and poignant depiction of wildlife plunder and of those who dare to oppose it. It is also a darkly comic tale, in which the very urban Nile and the country-smart, near-genius C?leste teach each other about life and death, love and loss
Online organic chemistry by Philip A Janowicz( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a comprehensive study of the many facets of an entirely online organic chemistry course. Online homework with structure-drawing capabilities was found to be more effective than written homework. Online lecture was found to be just as effective as in-person lecture, and students prefer an online lecture format with shorter Webcasts. Online office hours were found to be effective, and discussion sessions can be placed online as well. A model was created that explains 36.1% of student performance based on GPA, ACT Math score, grade in previous chemistry course, and attendance at various forms of discussion. Online exams have been created which test problem-solving skills and is instantly gradable. In these exams, students can submit answers until time runs out for different numbers of points. These facets were combined effectively to create an entirely online organic chemistry course which students prefer over the in-person alternative. Lastly, there is a vision for where online organic chemistry is going and what can be done to improve education for all

Noel Burun has total recall, while ironically, his mother Stella is suffering from Alzheimer's disease. Three eccentric friends - the Byronesque Norval, "swoonworthy" Samira, and excitable JJ - all co-subjects with Noel in memory experiments conducted by Dr. Vorta, move in with the Buruns. That frees Noel, a pharmacologist turned alchemist, to concentrate on finding a cure for his mother. Roger's Writers Trust award finalist 2004, Winner of the Commonwealth Writers Prize. 2004

Multifunctional Polymers and Composites for Self-Healing Applications( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mechanical deformation can be used to activate specific reaction pathways in mechanochemical triggers designed to harness the energy in a polymer under stress. Since activation of these triggers occurs before chain scission, we feel that they will be useful for the development of self-toughening polymeric materials. Upon activation, the oQDM intermediates could react with pendant dienophiles to form new crosslinks. The formation of crosslinks would be directly coupled and tailored to the stress field in a failing polymer. We also feel, with slight modification, that mechanochemical triggers could be useful for the stress-induced formation of new chromophores. The newly formed chromophores could then signal that some critical load has been reached, or perhaps signal the presence of microcracks. We expect that the procedures reported here will be generally useful for the development of utilizing mechanical energy to activate specific chemical pathways, and help shift the major focus of mechanochemical studies from bond-breaking to bond-making transformations
A quantitative and predictive model for mechanochemical kinetics and its experimental validation by Timothy J Kucharski( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fact that the application of mechanical force to materials can change the reactivity of their constituent molecules (or ions) has been known for millennia, but the complexity of these multi-scale phenomena limited their partial explanation to the theoretical until the advances in micromanipulation techniques in recent decades allowed for the application of force to single molecules. Traditional theories of chemical reactivity have failed to explain the phenomenal rate enhancements observed (up to 10^15-fold), and though a body of empirical relationships between force and reactivity exists, a physically sound and quantitative model for mechanochemical kinetics did not. Truly taking advantage of all that mechanochemistry offers for the design of novel mechanoresponsive and actuating materials requires a clear conceptual framework describing how and why mechanical force affects chemical reactivity. This work describes the development of such a model for mechanochemical kinetics and its experimental validation using a series of paradigmatic electrocyclic and SN2 reactions. Pioneering a new technique for mechanochemical analysis complementary to single-molecule force experiments, we synthesized several series of macrocycles containing the reactive moieties of interest and a photoisomerizable molecular actuator, stiff stilbene (1,1'-Delta-biindan). In small enough macrocycles, irradiation with UV light generates a highly strained E isomer in which the reactive moiety experiences nearly uniaxial strain. The difference in reactivity between the strained and unstrained isomers is quantified experimentally, and the difference in strain between the two photoisomers is quantified as force (i.e., the gradient of energy with respect to position). Through theory and experiment, the local molecular degree of freedom which dictates a molecule⁰́₉s response to force is identified, and the relationship between its elongation and stretching compliance is demonstrated. As expected by historical and contemporary thought, acceleration by tensile force is observed when the reactive moiety elongates to reach the transition state, as is observed in the electrocyclic ring opening of trans-3,4-dimethylcyclobutene and the hydrolysis of primary sulfonates. However, two other possibilities exist which arise from the cancellation or complete negation of scissile bond elongation: force insensitivity and inhibition by tensile force; our model predicts and explains both of these situations and also explains why the same reaction can be both accelerated by force in one direction and inhibited by force in another. In more complexreaction sequences, such as pre-equilibrium kinetics, the application of force can even change the overall kinetic profile of a sequence of reactions. As the relative energies of transition states and minima change as increasing amounts of force are applied, the identity of the rate-determining step can change at critical amounts of force, leading to kinetic crossover, a phenomenon whose richness and complexity is underappreciated. By clarifying the fundamental relationship between force and reactivity, our model provides a deeper understanding of the operational principles of phenomena at the interfaces of chemistry, biology, soft matter physics, and materials science. Along with the description of the experimental work to validate our model for mechanochemical kinetics, this work also provides speculation for the future directions of the field of mechanochemistry, both identifying old questions that may now be assailable and new questions that have not yet been asked. Because mechanochemistry bridges the disciplines of chemistry, materials science, soft-matter physics and molecular biology, the opportunities for a clearer understanding of mechanochemical kinetics to have a broad impact on science and technology are great
Development of soft lithography based non-planar and 3-D photo-patterning techniques by Audrey M Bowen( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fusion of soft lithography fabrication processes and optical lithography has been demonstrated in the literature. The focus of this thesis is on the adaptation of soft lithography protocols and further understanding of the materials chemistry of PDMS that allows for fabrication of soft optical lithography masks. A collection of new methods for fabrication of photolithography masks that are used in new forms of 3D patterning, such as patterning on non-planar (3D) surfaces and fabricating multi-height (3D) photoresist structures, is presented. The mask fabrication processes utilize novel approaches to soft lithography that allow for desired optical properties to be easily programmed into the masks. This body of work progresses from the simplest optics, binary modulation of intensity through optically dense mask elements, to grayscale mask elements that vary in optical density and thus allow for single step multi-intensity exposures, and finally to a stamp fabrication approach that results in features with triangular cross-sections that are then used to transfer the patterns into application enabling materials for use in a number of systems that require careful manipulation of light-matter interactions. By harnessing both the benefits of soft lithography and optical lithography, these new patterning protocols provide more efficient, lower cost, methods for achieving novel patterning in forms that prove to be extremely challenging with traditional lithographic processes

Carbon-carbon bond formation methods for the preparation of shape-persistent architectures by Aaron D Finke( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Carbon-rich, conjugated organic scaffolding is a popular basis for functional materials, especially for electronic and photonic applications. However, synthetic methods for generating these types of materials lack diversity and, in many cases, efficiency; the insistence of investigators focusing on the properties of the end product, rather than the process in which it was created, has led to the current state of the relatively homogeneous synthetic chemistry of functional organic materials. Because of this, there is plenty of room for improvement at the most basic level. Problems endemic to the preparation of carbon-rich scaffolding can, in many cases, be solved with modern advances in synthetic methodology. We seek to apply this synthesis-focused paradigm to solve problems in the preparation of carbon-rich scaffolds. Herein, the development and utilization of three methodologies: iridium-catalyzed arene C-H borylation; zinc- mediated alkynylations; and Lewis acid promoted Mo nitride-alkyne metathesis, are presented as improvements for the preparation of carbon-rich architectures. In addition, X-ray crystallographic analysis of two classes of compounds are presented. First, an analysis of carbazole-containing arylene ethynylene macrocycles showcases the significance of alkyl chain identity on solid-state morphology. Second, a class of rigid zwitterionic metal-organic compounds display an unusual propensity to crystallize in the absence of inversion symmetry. Hirshfeld surface analysis of these crystalline materials demonstrates that subtle intermolecular interactions are responsible for the overall packing motifs in this class of compounds
Synthesis and evaluation of quadruple hydrogen-bonding modules for smart materials applications by Cyrus A Anderson( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The research described herein pertains to the design, synthesis and evaluation of DNA base pair mimics for supramolecular and materials chemistry applications. Recently, the ureido-7-deazaguanine (DeUG) and 2,7-diamidonaphthyridine (DAN) H-bonding modules have been shown to form a highly stable complex (Kassoc = 10^8 M^⁰́₃1) in chloroform solution. Use of these units in applications requires derivatives that can be incorporated into polymers and onto surfaces. A method for the synthesis of non-symmetric diamidonaphthyridines from bromonaphthyridines using copper catalysis with aqueous ammonia at ambient temperature and pressure is detailed in chapter two. Chapter three relates several general strategies for the preparation of functional DeUG derivatives. The chemistry described in the first two chapters allows the synthesis of DAN and DeUG units featuring vinyl monomers, azide, alkyne, and other reactive groups for various coupling chemistries. Evaluation of the DAN and DeUG pair as a coupling agent for improving the interfacial adhesion between styrene and glass is explored in chapter four. Potential applications include advanced adhesives and coatings. Incorporation of the DAN unit into polystyrene via C⁰́₃H activation and Suzuki-Miyaura coupling and functionalization of glass substrates with organosilanes are reported. Materials characterization and mechanical test results are consistent with the recognition units playing a role in the improved adhesive response as compared to an unmodified system. Progress toward a photoresponsive bisureidonaphthyridine H-bonding unit is disclosed in chapter 5. The photoresponsive naphthyridine is designed to allow reversible, light-driven modulation of the binding between the naphthyridine and DeUG. Synthetic results are discussed and binding data for bisureidonaphthyridine and DeUG are reported. The conformational change required of bisureidonaphthyridine prior to complexation with DeUG results in a smaller association constant as compared to the DAN·DeUG system, which does not require reorganization prior to binding. The binding properties of the DAN·DeUG and bisuredionaphthyridine-DeUG units allow complexation induced control over the conformational preference of bisureidonaphthyridine
