Effects of Selected Contaminants on the Physical, Chemical, and Geotechnical Properties of Aquifer Solid
contaminants on the hydraulic conductivity of sand. Bulk sand samples from the Missouri River Valley aquifer— a major source of groundwater supply in the U.S. Midwest— were collected for this study. Sand samples, representing the aquifer and vadose zone...
Biogeochemistry and inorganic geochemistry as indicators of the paleoenvironment and paleohydrology of the Al-Azraq Basin, Jordan
This study investigates the biogeochemical and inorganic geochemical indicators for past environments and paleohydrology of a high resolution sediment record from the Al-Azraq Basin, Jordan. The second largest basin in ...
Growth of Semiconductor Thin Films by Pulsed Laser Deposition
(University of Missouri--Kansas City, 2016)
Pulsed ultraviolet light from a XeF excimer laser was used to grow thin films of zinc oxide and tin dioxide on (111) p-type silicon wafers within a versatile high vacuum laser deposition system. This pulsed laser deposition ...
Metabolomic Analysis of Bacterial Cell Wall Intermediates Using LC-MS/MS: Peptidoglycan Pathway Response to Different Antibiotics
(University of Missouri--Kansas City, 2017)
The bacterial cell wall is made up of peptidoglycan (PG) and its synthesis is of interest as a target for several antibiotics and for new inhibitor development. Peptidoglycan biosynthesis is a complex process which ...
Engineering of Human Acid Phosphatase Enzyme Sensitive Nanomedicine for HIV/AIDS Prevention by Topical Route
(University of Missouri -- Kansas City, 2018)
This study is divided into two aims. Aim #1 focuses on the development and characterization of tenofovir (TFV) loaded a stimuli sensitive nanomedicine against male to female HIV/AIDS infection. Aim #2 focus on the ...
Metabolomics and chemical library screening for antibacterial drug discovery
There are twenty standard amino acids which are proteinogenic and can exist in two stereoisomeric forms, D- and L-enantiomers, except for glycine, which is achiral. The D-amino acids are not incorporated in proteins; ...
