• Computational Studies of Five Macromolecular Systems 

    Emamian, Somayeh (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2015)
    C-alkylpyrogallol[4]arenes have been studied by DFT computations and the results compared to experimental observations. Local minima of different conformers were located by geometry optimization of the trial structures ...
  • Probing supramolecular assemblies via fluorescent reporter molecules 

    Bassil, Daniel Boutros, 1977- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2007)
    Supramolecular, self-assembled nanocapsules have shown the capability to encapsulate organic guests. Since most of the work was done previously in the solid state, the novelty of this research was its focus on probing ...
