Strong Electron Correlation Effects in Transition Metal Complexes: from Molecular Transitions to Absorption Spectra of Metalloproteins

submitted by: icamvid

Daniel Cox gives a talk at the ICAM 2007 conference about electron correlation on the molecular level and it's connection to the Anderson model, X-ray absorption, and molecular ransistors.

GREEN REVOLUTION: ELECTRIC VEHICLES

submitted by: nsf
Host Lisa Van Pay visits the scientists and engineers working to make the electric car of the future a reality today. One of the toughest parts is storing enough potential energy to get you where you’re going, and in this case, it’s all about the battery. Graduate student Katharine Stroukoff from the University of Texas-Austin explains how her research may help build a better battery, while Mike Nawrot and Dan Lauber, members of the MIT electric vehicle team, describe the advantages of...

Modern proteomes contain putative imprints of ancient shifts in trace metal geochemistry

submitted by: cdupont
Because of the rise in atmospheric oxygen 2.3 billion years ago (Gya) and the subsequent changes in oceanic redox state over the last 2.3–1 Gya, trace metal bioavailability in marine environments has changed dramatically. Although theorized to have influenced the biological usage of metals leaving discernable genomic signals, a thorough and quantitative test of this hypothesis has been lacking. Using structural bioinformatics and whole-genome sequences, the Fe-, Zn-, Mn-, and...
