Department of Chemical Engineering , University of Illinois at Chicago , 810 S. Clinton Street , Chicago , Illinois 60607 , United States.

Growing worldwide population, climate change, and decaying water infrastructure have all contributed to a need for a better water treatment and conveyance model. Distributed water treatment is one possible solution, which relies on the local treatment of water from various sources to a degree dependent on its intended use and, finally, distribution to local consumers. This distributed, fit-for-purpose water treatment strategy requires the development of new modular point-of-use and point-of-entry technologies to bring this idea to fruition. Read More

School of Global Policy and Strategy, Rady School of Management, University of California, San Diego, San Diego, CA, USA.

People can evaluate a set of options as a whole, or they can approach those same options with the purpose of making a choice between them. A common network has been implicated across these two types of evaluations, including regions of ventromedial prefrontal cortex and the posterior midline. We test the hypothesis that sub-components of this reward circuit are differentially involved in triggering more automatic appraisal of one's options (Dorsal Value Network) versus explicitly comparing between those options (Ventral Value Network).

The availability of electrons to biological systems underpins the mitochondrial electron transport chain (ETC) that powers living cells. It is little wonder, therefore, that the sufficiency of electron supply is critical to cellular health. Considering mitochondrial redox activity alone, a lack of oxygen (hypoxia) leads to impaired production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the major energy currency of the cell, whereas excess oxygen (hyperoxia) is associated with elevated production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) from the interaction of oxygen with electrons that have leaked from the ETC.

Time-Resolved Spectroscopic Observation and Characterization of Water-Assisted Photoredox Reactions of Selected Aromatic Carbonyl Compounds.

Acc Chem Res 2019 Feb 11. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Department of Chemistry , The University of Hong Kong , Pokfulam Road , Hong Kong , P. R. China.

In recent years, unusual and efficient self-photoredox reactions were detected for selected benzophenone derivatives (BPs) and anthraquinone derivatives (AQs) in aqueous environments by Wan and co-workers, where the carbonyl undergoes reduction to the corresponding alcohol and a side-chain alcohol group undergoes oxidation to the corresponding carbonyl. To unravel the photoredox reaction mechanisms of these types of BPs and AQs in aqueous environments, we have utilized a combination of time-resolved spectroscopy techniques such as femtosecond transient absorption, nanosecond transient absorption, and nanosecond time-resolved resonance Raman spectroscopy to detect and characterize the electronic absorption and vibrational spectra of the intermediates and transient species from the femtosecond to microsecond time region after they are generated in the photoredox reactions. With the assistance of density functional theory calculations to simulate the electronic absorption and Raman spectra, the structural and kinetic information on the key reactive intermediates is described.
