Pluses and minuses of lipid mass spectrometry

Lipids (fats) are an abundant and structurally diverse group of molecules with an equally diverse array of functions in cellular biology.This project will develop new analytical technologies - based on advances in mass spectrometry and ion chemistry - that enable the analyst to identify and quantify individual lipids present at low concentrations in biological mixtures comprising many thousands of distinct molecules.These new capabilities will drive the discovery of unknown lipids and map the complex biochemical pathways through which they are …

Discovery and design of novel catalysts from computational chemistry

The discovery and design of novel materials as efficient catalysts are critical for the development of innovative clean energy and environmental technology. For example, hydrogen production involves hydrogen evolution and oxygen evolution reactions - oxygen reduction/evolution reactions are important in fuel cell and air battery technology, carbon dioxide reduction is related to the mitigation of carbon emission, and nitrogen fixation is linked to the fertiliser production process.In principle, the catalytic properties of a material are completely determined by its electronic …
