Intercalated MoS2 Nanoparticles for Enhanced Dispersion in Smokes and Obscurants
The intercalation of MoS2 with diethyl oxalate (DEO) and Meldrum's Acid (MA) has been achieved via an exfoliation and reflocculation process. Ethyl diazoacetate (EDA) did not intercalate under identical conditions. The ...
OMI Tropospheric Sulfur Dioxide Retreival: Validation and Analysis
SO2 impacts the radiative balance of the Earth and is the precursor to the major acid and much of the particulate matter in the atmosphere. Improved spectrometer resolution of the Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) enables ...
AQUEOUS PHOTOCHEMISTRY OF 1,4-BENZOQUINONES AND THEIR POSSIBLE ROLE IN THE PHOTOCHEMISTRY OF NATURAL ORGANIC MATTER
Past research implicated the presence of an organic species as a photochemical source of OH radical in natural waters. Quinones were postulated to be one of the possible OH sources due to 1) the ubiquitous occurence of ...
Investigation of Rhenium's Biogeochemistry
The form of the paleoredox indicator, rhenium, that is sequestered in reducing sediments is not known. To probe this question, I used Laser Ablation ICP-MS to look for correlations between Re signals and those of other ...
THE OPTICAL KERR EFFECT OF LIQUIDS
Optical Kerr effect (OKE) spectroscopy has found broad use in monitoring ultrafast dynamics in transparent media. I demonstrated that by using two pump pulses with independently-controllable polarizations, intensity and ...
