Electrochemistry and Photophysics

Abstract:   Dye-sensitized solar cells (DSCs), those comprising inorganic titania, molecular chromophores, and redox shuttles, have shown promise as a low-tech alternative to pricy silicon-based solar cells. In order to improve the photon-to-electron conversion quantum efficiency, lots of efforts have […]

Metal-Organic Framework Materials for Energy Applications

Abstract :  Metal-organic framework (MOF) materials present large surface areas (as great as 7 square kilometers per kilogram) and crystallographically well-defined porosity on the molecular scale. These properties make MOFs attractive candidates for storage and release of ambient-temperature natural gas […]

Spontaneous Formation of Oligomers and Fibrils in Large Scale Molecular Dynamics Simulations of Peptides

Abstract: Protein aggregation is associated with serious and eventually-fatal neurodegenerative diseases including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. While atomic resolution molecular dynamics simulations have been useful in this regard, they are limited to examination of either oligomer formation by a small number […]
