Development of graphite based nanomaterials for green chemistry applications
Graphite is a valuable natural resource and useful carbon allotrope that has been explored for various applications. Graphene is a two-dimensional (2D) transparent material, which is the strongest, thinnest, and most ...
Design and synthesis of small molecule ligands targeting protease-activated receptor 2 as potential diagnostic and therapeutic agents
Positron emission tomography (PET) imaging requires radionuclides (positron-emitters) labeled molecules (tracers) to image biochemical and physiological processes in vivo and helps diagnose diseases noninvasively. The ...
The design of Zr metal-organic frameworks in the detection and neutralization of organophosphorus based nerve agents and pesticides
Organophosphates are ubiquitous in uses ranging from chemical warfare agents (CWA’s) to detergents. In between these two extreme uses lie organophosphorus-based agrichemicals, primarily pesticides, which are applied in ...
18F Radiolabeling of epidermal growth factor receptor-tyrosine kinase inhibitor anti-cancer drugs for therapeutic outcome studies
Epidermal growth factor receptor is a transmembrane protein with tyrosine kinase activity that plays a vital role in the proliferation, differentiation, and survival of normal cells. When mutations in this protein occur, ...
