Award Number1904295Funding AgencyNational Science FoundationEffective Date2019-07-15Expiration Date2022-06-30Funding Amount$400,000
Guanidine is a potential nitrogen fertilizer and ethylene has been proposed as a potential alternative fuel source; thus, the biosynthetic reactions that form these compounds are commercially important as they have potential benefits for agriculture and the biofuels industries. With this award, the Chemistry of Life Processes Program in the Chemistry Division is funding Drs. Robert Hausinger and Jian Hu at Michigan State University, and Dr. Christo Christov at Michigan Technological Institute…

With support from the NSF Improving Undergraduate STEM Education Program: Education and Human Resources (IUSE: EHR), this project serves the national interest by expanding the number of well-prepared STEM majors who choose careers in urban STEM teaching. An important national priority is to provide all young people in US schools with STEM teachers of the highest caliber. To be fully successful, urban STEM teachers must have deep STEM knowledge, the ability to translate STEM knowledge and prac…

With support from the Chemical Measurement and Imaging Program in the Division of Chemistry, Professor Robert Kennedy and his group at the University of Michigan are working to improve the characterization of complex mixtures such as blood and soil extracts, common in nature and industrial processes. Studying the composition of such mixtures is vital to biology, chemistry, environmental science, and production of valuable chemicals. A powerful approach to analyzing such mixtures begins by sep…

With funding from the Chemical Structure, Dynamics and Mechanisms B Program of the NSF Chemistry Division, the collaborative research team of Professor Lehnert of University of Michigan and Professor Shearer of Trinity University investigates different Cobalt- and Nickel-based oxo complexes to improve the understanding of the structural and electronic properties of these unstable species. Metal-oxo species are often implicated in enzymatic and synthetic catalysis and play key roles in hormone…

Hexagonal ferrites are magnetic materials of choice for use in high frequency communication devices and radars due to low losses. The main drawback in such devices, however, is the need for a source of magnetic field to tune the operating frequency that requires very high power. Such tuning also makes them bulky and not compatible for integration with semiconductor devices. This project is aimed at a new generation of ferrite magnetic devices that are tunable by applying a voltage, and theref…

With funding from the Chemical Catalysis Program of the Chemistry Division, Professor Nathaniel Szymczak of the University of Michigan Ann Arbor is leading a research project on the synthesis of new kinds of catalysts. The new catalysts bind starting materials by "multipoint interactions". This new approach provides a way to control chemical reactions and differs from traditional methods. The project examines how catalyst structures affect the speed and selectivity of the chemical reactions. …

One of the most important goals of modern astrophysics is the detailed understanding of the formation and growth of galaxies. This project will add a refinement to models of the birth of star clusters in galaxies and their influence on the growth of the galaxy. They will include these models in simulations of the the growth of galaxies in the universe over the age of the universe. The results of these models will be used to compare with future observations from telescopes on the ground and in…

With support from the Chemical Measurement and Imaging Program in the Division of Chemistry, Professors Boyd Goodson at Southern Illinois University (SIU) and Eduard Chekmenev at Wayne State University (WSU) are working to improve the sensitivity of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), an important method of chemical analysis which underlies the well-known clinical imaging modality, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The Goodson/Chekmenev team is developing new, inexpensive, and easy-to-make mean…

Cluster varieties are certain geometric spaces of parameters; certain functions of those parameters form so-called cluster algebras. These have found applications throughout mathematics and mathematical physics. This project proposes to study the geometry of cluster algebras in two senses. The first is to apply tools from algebraic geometry to the study of cluster varieties. This will hopefully enable us to understand the structure of integrals computed on cluster varieties, which are common …
