Disease diagnosis, biodefense among UH chemical research projects

HOUSTON With 33 presentations of original research that showcase applications ranging from early-stage disease diagnosis to fuel cells and batteries, the University of Houston will be well represented at the 229th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS), March 13 to 17 in San Diego.

Founded in 1876, the ACS is a nonprofit, scientific and educational organization and the largest scientific society in the world with an international membership of more than 159,000 chemists and chemical engineers. Chartered by the U.S. Congress, ACS is a world leader in fostering chemical education and research.

Faculty members of the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics and Cullen College of Engineering, in addition to numerous graduate students, are among the UH attendees. Presenters and presentations include:

  • Rigoberto Advincula, associate professor of chemistry, and his research group will present 22 papers with recent research results based on two major themes polymer-nanoparticle hybrid materials and polymer loops and brushes. Polymer materials and ultrathin polymer films have applications in advanced electronics, display technology, biosensors and biomedical devices. Advincula also is sole presenter on the paper "Electropatterning and nanopatterning of conjugated polymer ultrathin films: The precursor polymer approach."

  • Steven Baldelli, assistant professor of chemistry, will present research with applications in batteries and fuel cells. His paper is titled "Surface spectroscopy of room-temperature ionic liquids at the platinum-liquid electrochemical interface."

  • Chengzhi Cai, assistant professor of chemistry, will present research on "Protein nanoarrays on monolayers presenting oligo (ethylene glycol)s on Si(111) surfaces." The long-term goal of this research focuses on the preparation of nanometer-sized arrays of sensor molecules that are relevant to early-stage disease diagnosis,
