Gray group graduate students Tadeas Liska and Mengdi Li, in collaboration with researchers at the University of Houston, published a family of phosphorescent platinum(II) alkynyls where excited-state charge transfer is enhanced by remote boron substitution. Luminescence persists for milliseconds at 298 K in polymer films, with radiative yields reaching...
The Department of Chemistry honors Anthony J. Pearson with this prestigious award for his nearly 30 years of service to the department decorated with incredible achievements and unwavering support of students.
After almost two years as a permanent member of the council, Blanton Tolbert will take on a leadership role as chairperson of the Office of Aids Research Advisory Council.
In collaboration with Jankowsky and Licatalosi groups from the Center for RNA Science and Therapeutics and the Department of Biochemistry, members of the Crespo Group publish pioneering research on the dynamics of RNA-protein interactions in living cells. Proteins that act on RNA molecules rapidly associate and dissociate from their target binding sites, and measurements of the rates of...
