Understanding Students’ Global Interdependence In Science Instruction, Walter S. Smith 2021 Texas Tech University

Understanding Students’ Global Interdependence In Science Instruction, Walter S. Smith

Journal of Global Education and Research

Multiple American educational organizations such as the National Education Association, Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development, and the Council of Chief State School Officers have advocated for globalizing the K-12 curriculum. The National Science Teaching Association (NSTA) in a position statement on international education and the Next Generation Science Standards have produced goals and standards for internationalizing the science curriculum by addressing topics such as climate change, environment, and disease that cross borders. In contrast to those pronouncements on the curriculum, this article views global science education through an instructional lens that focuses on a students’ global interdependence in science ...


Stay Calm And Focus On The Learning Outcomes: Tools For Taking Biophysical Chemistry Online, Maria Ballester, Brian L. Van Hoozen Jr., Arthur Sikora 2021 Nova Southeastern University

Stay Calm And Focus On The Learning Outcomes: Tools For Taking Biophysical Chemistry Online, Maria Ballester, Brian L. Van Hoozen Jr., Arthur Sikora

Chemistry and Physics Faculty Articles

Course specific learning outcomes are an important tool to define the scope of a course and can be very helpful when designing experiments and assessments. With slight modification, these learning outcomes can serve as a guide when transitioning to the distance learning format especially in courses with a traditional lab. Here we present such an example for the biophysical chemistry course.


Mechanistic And Synthetic Studies Of Oxidopyrylium Cycloaddition Reactions, Lauren P. Bejcek 2021 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Mechanistic And Synthetic Studies Of Oxidopyrylium Cycloaddition Reactions, Lauren P. Bejcek

Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

Cycloaddition chemistry has historically served as a robust route to stereo-rich and highly functionalized cyclic and heterocyclic compounds. Herein we describe our examination of 3-hydroxy-4-pyrone-derived oxidopyrylium cycloadditions in both mechanistic considerations as well as the unique synthetic advancements of their corresponding cycloadducts. Chapter 1 is a literature review where we specifically outline the use of oxidopyrylium cycloadditions in the synthesis of natural products. This includes the mention of previous syntheses prior to 2008, and a more thorough examination of the natural products synthesized from 2008 to present. The work exploits this chemistry as a facile route to highly complex 7-membered ...


Synthetic And Biological Studies On Benzazepine Derivatives As Dopamine Receptor Ligands, Rajan Giri 2021 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Synthetic And Biological Studies On Benzazepine Derivatives As Dopamine Receptor Ligands, Rajan Giri

Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

Dopamine (DA) receptors, members of the G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) family, are divided in two groups based on their transmembrane structural homology domains: D1R-like (D1R, D5R sub-types) and D2R-like DA receptors (D2R, D3R and D4R sub-types). Disturbances in dopaminergic neurotransmission are associated with several CNS disorders. Hence, DA receptor selective ligands have been sought as pharmacological agents to normalize perturbations in the dopaminergic system. Despite several notable efforts, the discovery of highly selective ligands for dopamine receptor sub-types has proved challenging due to close transmembrane structural similarity, especially between DA receptor sub-types within the same group.

The 1-phenylbenzazepine scaffold is ...


Emergent Photophyiscs In Diketopyrrolopyrrole Superstructures, Andrew Levine 2021 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Emergent Photophyiscs In Diketopyrrolopyrrole Superstructures, Andrew Levine

Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

Organic semiconductors have received substantial attention as active components in optoelectronic devices because of their processability and customizable electronic properties. Tailoring the organic active layer in these devices to exhibit desirable optoelectronic properties requires understanding the complex and often subtle structure-property relationships governing their photophysical response to light. Both structural organization and frontier molecular orbitals (FMO) play pivotal roles in energy relaxation processes, and complex interplay between organization and orbital energies are difficult to anticipate based upon the molecular structure of the components alone, especially in systems comprised of multiple components. In pursuit of design rules, there is a need ...


Theranostic Applications Of Sirna Bioconjugates In Cancer Detection And Treatment, Sunil S. Shah 2021 Seton Hall University

Theranostic Applications Of Sirna Bioconjugates In Cancer Detection And Treatment, Sunil S. Shah

Seton Hall University Dissertations and Theses (ETDs)

Abstract

The emerging field of RNA nanotechnology has led to rapid advances in the applications of RNA in chemical biology, medicinal chemistry, and biotechnology. At the forefront of its utility is the ability to self-assemble multiple siRNAs into nanostructure formulations capable of targeting selected oncogenes and potentiating the gene therapy of malignant tumors. Self-assembled siRNA integrates multiple siRNAs within a single molecular platform for silencing multiple oncogenic mRNA targets with high precision and efficacy to potentially induce cancer cell apoptosis through the RNA interference (RNAi) pathway. Furthermore, the conjugation of siRNA self-assemblies with bio-active probes results in multi-functional theranostic (therapy ...


Cu-Promoted C-H Bond Hydroxylation Inspired By Cu-Dependent Metalloenzymes, Rachel Trammell 2021 Southern Methodist University

Cu-Promoted C-H Bond Hydroxylation Inspired By Cu-Dependent Metalloenzymes, Rachel Trammell

Chemistry Theses and Dissertations

From 2003 to 2015, Schӧnecker and Baran proposed a dinuclear Cu/O2 species in their mechanistic proposal for the hydroxylation of sp3 C-H bonds within their systems (proposed based on yields). Inspired from the site selectivity of this methodology and poor analysis of the mechanism, the first project was inspired to re-examine the sp3 C-H bond hydroxylation by Schrӧnecker and Baran and perform an intensive investigation into understanding how Cu/O2 interact which led us to propose a new mechanism based on the evidence collected (i.e., LCuII-hydroperoxide species that undergoes homolytic O-O bond ...


Explorations Of Thermus Thermophilus Hb8 Transcription Factors Ttha1437 And Ttha1719 Using The Combinatorial Selection Method Repsa, Sarah Claire Sneed 2021 Kennesaw State University

Explorations Of Thermus Thermophilus Hb8 Transcription Factors Ttha1437 And Ttha1719 Using The Combinatorial Selection Method Repsa, Sarah Claire Sneed

Master of Science in Chemical Sciences Theses

In all organisms, genes exist that encode for regulatory proteins, called transcription factors (TFs) that can activate or repress transcription of specific genes depending on their biological function. Thermus thermophilus HB8 is speculated to contain 2,245 genes, of which 70 are postulated to be transcription factors. However, but for very few, little is known regarding the genes they regulate and their biological functions. The novel combinatorial method Restriction Endonuclease Protection, Selection, and Amplification (REPSA) has been successful for identifying and validating consensus binding sequences in T. thermophilus HB8 with previously studied TFs. Here REPSA was explored as a technique ...
