Amanda Lines will be presenting.
Title: Spectroelectrochemical characterization of select f-elements in complexes with sensitizing ligands
Abstract: Fast, robust, and cost-effective means of detecting and quantifying f-elements are needed for supporting more efficient tracking of actinides and lanthanides in nuclear reprocessing streams. Spectroelectrochemistry is a powerful technique combining electrochemistry and spectroscopy that can potentially meet those needs. To support the use of SEC as an analytical tool for f-elements, the electrochemical and spectroscopic characteristics of those metal cations must be explored. Furthermore, the metal cations will be studied in complexes with sensitizing ligands.

Zhihao Yu will be presenting.
Title: Deprotonation of p-Hydroxybenzoic Acid: Does Electrospray Ionization Sample Solution or Gas-Phase Structures?
Abstract: Despite the simplicity of the molecule, the site of single deprotonation of p-hydroxybenzoic acid upon electrospray ionization (ESI) has recently formed a subject of debate in the journal. By means of NMR experiments in solution and gas-phase studies employing ion-mobility mass spectrometry (IMMS), the apparent controversy is resolved. It is shown that irrespective of the solvent the carboxylate tautomer is preferred in solution, while the opposite holds true for isolated ions in the gas phase.

Molecular Electrocatalysts for the Production and Oxidation of Hydrogen: Shoving Protons Around With Proton Relays

Chemistry

4/28/2014 4:10 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Fulmer 438

Dr. Zach Heiden will be hosting Dr. Morris Bullock from Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
Abstract: Solar and wind power are carbon-neutral, sustainable energy sources, but their intermittent nature requires reliable energy storage. Catalysts that efficiently interconvert between electrical energy and chemical bonds (fuels) are needed for sustainable, secure energy in the future. Electrocatalysts based on inexpensive, earth-abundant metals (“Cheap Metals for Noble Tasks”) are needed since low-temperature fuel cells generally use platinum, an expensive, precious metal. Biologically inspired synthetic complexes incorporate pendant amines into the second coordination sphere of metal complexes.
