Photochemical Oxidation Mass Spectrometry
A193 nm laser is directed at the electrospray source of a mass spectrometer that contains hydrogen peroxide and a protein. The photogenerated radicals oxidize the protein, enabling ultrafast characterization of its structure.
A siloxide podand ligand is used to tease out structure-reactivity relationships in alkyne metathesis. It also affords a very rare (and dynamic!) metallatetrahedrane.
DIVERSITY IN STEM
An evaluation study with a mixed methods approach evaluating program impacts and outcomes of a minority training program over a period of 14 years. Results indicate which strategies were most effective in promoting interest and matriculation into graduate programs among underrepresented groups in STEM.
