The Reveal: A Technical Study And Conservation Treatment Of An Overpaint Portrait, Camille Ferrer 2024 SUNY University at Buffalo

The Reveal: A Technical Study And Conservation Treatment Of An Overpaint Portrait, Camille Ferrer

Art Conservation Master's Projects

A severely damaged 19th-century oil painting depicting a portrait of a woman was treated at Patricia H. and E. Garman Art Conservation Department. A typed letter provided by the owner mentioned that it has been previously restored yet returned with unsatisfactory results. After further examination, the painting appeared to have been previously treated multiple times by different people. There was overpaint distinctly present on the face and later discovered to be present overall. The full state of condition of the painting was initially unknown due to the sum of the surface being overpainted. However, there were evidence of paint loss …


Excited State Processes In Radical Elaborated Platinum Donor-Acceptor Complexes, Sangita Paudel 2024 University of New Mexico

Excited State Processes In Radical Elaborated Platinum Donor-Acceptor Complexes, Sangita Paudel

Chemistry and Chemical Biology ETDs

Organo-transition metal complexes are being widely studied to understand their photophysical properties for their wide range of applications as efficient emitters in organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), light emitting electrochemical cells (LEECs), etc. Cyclometalated organo-transition metal complexes such as cyclometalated square planar platinum(II) complexes are becoming suitable candidates for such applications because of their highly efficient luminescence. Understanding the excited properties of such complexes is useful in designing highly efficient and color tunable phosphors with desired excited state lifetimes. We aim to explore the influence of radical substituents on electronic structure, luminescence quantum efficiencies, and excited state lifetimes by synthesizing …


Purification And Isolation Of Α-Chloro-Β-Lactone Precursor Molecules, Matthew Ellis 2024 Bridgewater College

Purification And Isolation Of Α-Chloro-Β-Lactone Precursor Molecules, Matthew Ellis

Honors Projects

This research investigates the synthesis of α-chloro-β-lactone molecules, focusing on the production, isolation, and purification of two precursor compounds from chloroacetic acid and substituted benzaldehydes. While multiple methods were explored, including EDC, DIC, and DCC catalysis, DCC proved to be most effective in producing higher yields. However, challenges in purification arose due to the formation of byproducts, particularly with DCC, prompting further investigation for efficient extraction and purification techniques. DCC, however, shows a promising route for α-chloro-β-lactone synthesis, despite purification complexities.

Investigations Of The Eutectic Formation And Skin Rejuvenation By Hyaluronan - Kojic Acid Dipalmitate System, Syed Waqar Hussain Shah, Sumbal Imran, Iram Bibi, Kashif Ali, Nadia Bashir

Karbala International Journal of Modern Science

Eutectic phenomenon has been investigated in binary system based on biopolymer hyaluronan (HN) and kojic acid dipalmitate (KAD). Solid-liquid phase diagram showed a significant dependence of melting points on weight fraction of KAD up to KAD < 0.5. A negligible regain to melting temperature of pure KAD occurred later. Simulations of molecular mechanics using a four-unit segment of HN and KAD revealed the interaction between carbonyl of KAD with 4-OH on N-acetylglucosamine unit of oligomer. Infrared vibrational spectroscopy also endorsed the existence of a weakly interacting system. Such behavior was expected due to steric hinderance and rigidity of biopolymer. The thermal decomposition temperature of HN (i.e., 215 °C) was increased to 322 °C in HK50 having HN and KAD in 1:50 w/w. Bioelectric impedance analysis revealed that these green materials could promote skin health in humans.

Turkish Journal of Chemistry

In recent years, water pollution caused by hazardous materials such as metals, drugs, pesticides, and insecticides has become a very serious environmental and health problem that needs to be addressed urgently. The nutritional needs associated with the increasing population also increase the demand for water use and rapidly increase the rate of freshwater consumption. Since most of the water in the universe is in the form of sea water, which cannot be directly used, freshwater resources are limited ,compared to the existing available water. When addressing the purification of all kinds of pollution in environmental research, nanostructured membranes attract attention …

Turkish Journal of Chemistry

First- and second-generation hydroxyl- terminated dendrimers were prepared starting from a 1,3-diaminopropane core and sulfonimide linkers. A first-generation mesitylene-derived dendrimer was also prepared with the same terminals. The dendrimers were then reacted with Fe3+, Al3+, and UO22+ separately in order to apply the dendrimers for binding these metals, which have important industrial applications and pose environmental problems simultaneously. The prepared dendrimers were also shown to bind Fe3+ selectively from mixtures with Al3+.

Turkish Journal of Chemistry

In the current study, the impact of C-ratio, convective heat transfer coefficient, and free stream temperature on the maximal cell temperature and temperature uniformity was computationally and statistically examined. Results revealed that the free stream temperature was the main influential factor for the maximal cell temperature for both natural and forced convection conditions while the C-ratio was the most effective parameter for the temperature uniformity for both natural and forced convections. On the other hand, the contribution of the free stream temperature to the maximum battery temperature increased from 63% to 94% when the conditions were changed from natural convection …
