  1. Segmented Polyhydoxyurethane as Novel Non-Isocyanate Polyurethane Functional Materials

    9s1616210?file=thumbnail
    Description: Polyurethane (PU) is an important commodity polymer with a broad range of applications. Increasing regulations on isocyanates have prompted investigations into alternative routes to PU. Cyclic carbonate aminolysis leading to polyhydroxyurethane (PHU) is a promising alternative. This dissertation describes the first fundamental investigation of the synthesis and properties of segmented,...

  2. Effects of Confinement and Interfaces on Stress Relaxation and Stiffness in Polymer Films and Nanocomposites Characterized by Novel Fluorescence Techniques

    Pr76f356g?file=thumbnail
    Description: Advancements in nanotechnology have led to the production of devices with components with sub-100 nm size scales. Studies have investigated how properties of polymers change when confined to nanoscale dimensions. However, stiffness-confinement studies have reported increases, decreases, and invariance with confinement for different polymer/substrate pairs, making it difficult to obtain...

  3. Improving Co-Translational Incorporation of Non-Standard Amino Acids into Recombinant Proteins in Escherichia coli

    X346d420r?file=thumbnail
    Description: The genetic code, a set of rules by which mRNA codons are translated into the twenty standard amino acids used in protein synthesis, was once thought to be immutable. As we expanded our understanding of molecular biology more variations in this genetic code have been found across the animal kingdom....

  5. Comparison of transmission dynamics in different networks

    2f75r807r?file=thumbnail
    Description: Contagion processes arise broadly in the social and biological sciences, manifested as, for example the spread of infectious and the diffusion of innovations. Depending on the network structure, the transmission dynamics can have different. However, when the structure is too complex (e.g. multipartite networks), understanding the properties of the network...

  6. Phase-Separated Elastomers: Novel Syntheses and Characterization

    C247ds142?file=thumbnail
    Description: Phase separation in segmented polymers provides distinct challenges in regard to their chemical reaction kinetics and characterization. Well studied, it has been shown that structure, phase separation and non-covalent interactions are key factors in the design of elastomeric polyurethanes. Specifically, this dissertation is focused on two areas: the synthesis of...

  7. Development and Application of Tools for Modeling Mass Transport and Catalytic Reaction in Nanostructured Membranes

    Ht24wj559?file=thumbnail
    Description: Modeling and simulation at different scales were used to study mass transport, residence times and selective oxidation in nanostructured membranes. First, analytical equations of the possible mass transport mechanisms inside the pores were used to determine that diffusion dominates over convection under the conditions of interest for selective oxidation: 700...

  8. Mechanistic Modeling of Hydrocarbon Autoxidation: Theory and Application to the Study of Lubricant Degradation

    Kk91fk62k?file=thumbnail
    Description: Autoxidation is a primary route by which lubricants in working conditions undergo degradation. Degraded lubricants, if not replaced periodically, contribute to increased wear and product failure. Experimental studies of lubricant degradation have yielded useful results but have left important questions unanswered. While many computational studies of degradation have been carried...

    Description: Spontaneous regeneration in the adult mammalian central nervous system is rare, minimal, and generally does not lead to substantial functional recovery. Tissue engineering strategies to promote nerve regeneration aim to provide an environment that is physically and chemically engineered to enhance tissue formation. Strategic design of this environment is crucial...
