From Research to Learning in Chemistry through Visualization and Computation
out of 5 stars
17 May 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Eric Jakobsson
Modern chemistry research and high school chemistry education are separated by institutional and geographical boundaries. As such, much of secondary chemistry education is still based on the periodic table instead of the computational methods that drive current chemistry research. In this talk,...
Functionalized Nanomaterials at the Interface of Biology and Technology
24 Apr 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dean Ho, National Center for Learning & Teaching in Nanosca
Nanomaterials, such as block copolymeric membranes and nanodiamonds, can be engineered for a broad range of applications in energy and medicine. This presentation will highlight the relevance of these materials as foundations for device fabrication across the spectrum of biology and technology....

Illinois Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology and Nano-CEMMS: A Hard Day in the Life of a Soft Cell
07 May 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Jeffrey Fredberg
AHard Day in the Life of a Soft CellWith every beat of the heart, inflation of the lung, or peristalsis of the gut, cell types of diverse function are subjected to substantial stretch. But what physical laws govern the abilities of the cytoskeleton to deform, contract, and remodel at the...

Introduction to Self-Assembled Monolayers and Biosensors
01 Aug 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Michael Toole
Recent research concerning self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) focuses on tasks from fabrication of microelectronics to creating biosensors. This presentation will address the fundamental principles of self-assembled monolayers, formation and analysis of self-assembled monolayers, the basics of...
Ion Selectivity in Synthetic and Natural Channels
31 Mar 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Susan Rempe
Transport across membranes and nanopores can be characterized by static equilibrium properties as well as by nonequilibrium dynamic properties. For example, equilibrium selectivity properties of a nanopore can be characterized by the difference in interaction free energy for transferring one ion...
