Measuring the galvanotaxic response of Amoeba proteus to a changing DC electrical field
Galvanotaxis is the change in cellular movement created by an electrical field. Different types of motile cells have been shown to exhibit galvanotaxis on a time frame of an hour in previous investigations. Amoeba typically ...
Mathematically Generated Fife Tunes
Trying completely to reduce musical composition to a simple mathematical algorithm may be impossible, but mathematics undeniably plays a major role in writing music. To investigate the role of mathematics in musical ...
Synthesis and Characterization of Water-Soluble Nanomaterials
Monolayer-protected CdSe and ZnSe quantum dots (qdots) were synthesized in aqueous solutions. Several water-soluble thiols were used to protect the semiconducting core from surface oxidation and to improve the stability ...
Optimization of Oxidative Desulfurization: Using a film-shear to achieve ultra-low sulfur levels in diesel fuel
A major focus of clean-fuels research involves the removal of sulfur contaminants from diesel jet fuel. Oxidative desulfurization with aqueous hydrogen peroxide as the oxidizing agent is one possible method of sulfur ...
Comfort Seeking: Validation of a new measure and its association with GPA
Comfort seeking is defined as the pursuit of physical, mental and social ease. A measure of comfort seeking would theoretically correlate positively with measures of dependent personality traits (Dependent Personal ...
Evaluation of two organic laboratory experiments according to the principles of green chemistry
A new trend in chemical education incorporates green chemistry practices into laboratory courses as evidenced by the Green Organic Chemistry course taught by Kenneth Doxee and James Hutchison at the University of Oregon. ...
