Alie's communication on the development of a sensor array to detect divalent metal ions using fluorescent coumarin enamine ligands was accepted in Chemical Communications. Congratulations Alie! The work was done in collaboration with Dr. Karl Wallace's group at the University of Southern Mississippi. The manuscript is available at this link.
Xiaoli successfully completed her initial research review today, presenting the significant body of work she carried out in the last nine months on the binding of carbohydrates to covalently modified PAMAM dendrimers. Congratulations Xiaoli!
Michael H. Ihde joined our group as a new graduate student. He will start out on both synthetic and instrumental projects, on the one hand attempting a large-scale synthesis of covalently modifiable low-generation PAMAM dendrons, and on the other by continuing studies on the properties that enable PAMAM dendrimers to act as solubilizers of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in neutral water solution. Welcome Michael!
