Macrocycle-Promoted Energy Transfer: From Fundamental Science to Applied, Practical Detection Applications
Mindy Levine, Ph.D., will speak about her research on macrocycle-promoted, non-covalent energy transfer from small molecule toxicants to high quantum yield fluorophores. This research includes fundamental investigations of the structure-property relationships that govern how molecules interact when they are in close proximity but not covalently attached, and it also includes applications of these systems in the detection of carcinogens in biological fluids and in the environmental remediation of oil spills.
Levine is an associate professor at the University of Rhode Island, where she runs a research program studying the fundamental science of supramolecular interactions.
This event was rescheduled from an earlier date due to weather.
