    • Biomimetic solar cells 

      Subbaiyan, Navaneetha K.; D’Souza, Francis (2010-03-25)
      Eco friendly energy resources are becoming important due to the predicted oil depletion and soared CO2 emission. Of available alternatives, solar energy finds special attention due to its vast availability and high power ...
    • Harvesting solar energy via artificial photosynthesis 

      Maligaspe, Eranda; D’Souza, Francis (2010-03-25)
      Photosynthesis, the process of converting light energy into chemical energy, involves two major steps, absorption and transportation of light energy of appropriate wavelength by the antenna light harvesting molecules to ...
    • The implications of gendering childhood obesity PSAs 

      O’Neal, Pamela K.; Ballard-Reisch, Deborah (2010-03-25)
      The percentage of overweight and obese children is at or above 30% in 30 U.S. states [1], including Kansas which ranks 22nd with 31% of its children rated as overweight or obese [1]. Nationally, 15.1 % of girls vs. 16.4% ...
    • Analysis of differential glycosylation patterns of human FSH 

      Chambers, Carrie Anne; Shuai, Bin; Bousfield, George R. (2010-03-25)
      Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) is a glycoprotein hormone with two subunits, α and β, and is required for gamete development. In a process known as glycosylation, oligosaccharide branches are added to specific residues ...
    • Spreading pathogens via healthcare uniforms 

      Curl, JoAnna L.; Garrett, Lindsay M.; Nyberg, Sue M. (2010-03-25)
      It is relatively common to see healthcare employees in their uniforms (lab coats, scrubs, etc.) outside of the workplace in areas such as restaurants and grocery stores. Research has shown that microorganisms can be ...
    • Comparative binding studies with a tetraurea picket porphyrin receptor using 1H NMR and isothermal titration calorimetry 

      Aw, Hong Wai; Burns, Dennis H. (2010-03-25)
      The determination of anion binding constants using 1H NMR and Isothermal Titration Calorimetric (ITC) reveals the occurrence of several specific and unspecific binding steps. In general, ITC reports on all specific and ...
    • Synthesis of highly ordered Titanium dioxide nanotubes: Impact of process parameters 

      Khan, Shifath Ikram; Asmatulu, Ramazan (2010-03-25)
      Highly ordered arrays of Titanium dioxide nanotubes were synthesized from Titanium foil using the electrochemical anodization process in an etching solution consisting of Ammonium Flouride (NH4F) and Ethylene Glycol. TiO2 ...
    • A fully Bayesian approach for sample size determination 

      Safaie, Nasser (2010-03-25)
      The sample size determination has a significant role in the design and analysis of many engineering problems and data sampling projects. There are a number of sampling techniques that can be utilized to quantify the impact ...
