Title: Sc2S@C2(7892)-C70: a metallic sulfide cluster inside a non-IPR C70 cage
Abstract: Following the discovery of C60 in 1985, much work in fullerene chemistry has been done, and enormous additions to this novel family of molecules has been made. Such additions include the discovery of sulfide clusterfullerenes in 2010 by Dunsch et al. Following this discovery, Echegoyen and Poblet, et al. synthesized Sc2S@C2(7892)-C70 using a modified Krätschmer-Huffman reactor. Sc2S@C2(7892)-C70 was purified using a multi-step HPLC procedure and characterized by mass spectrometry, UV-vis-NIR absorbance spectroscopy, cyclic voltammetry, and DFT calculations.

A Molecular Understanding of Hydrophobicity

Chemistry

9/22/2014 4:10 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Fulmer 438

Dr. ChulHee Kang will be hosting Dr. Toshiko Ichiye from Georgetown University.
Abstract: Although water is the most common and most important liquid on this planet, it is surprisingly poorly understood. By comparing simulations with different water models in molecular dynamics computer simulations, we are beginning to understand what are the underlying important features in the molecule and in the liquid structure that give rise to the unique properties of water. Most recently, we have been able to reproduce the anomalous behavior of the partial molar volumes in ethanol-water mixtures. From these studies, we have a new picture of hydrophobic hydration and the driving forces in hydrophobic association.
