Sustainable supercapacitor with a natural rubber-based electrolyte and natural graphite-based electrodes (2023)
Journal Article

Supercapacitors are at the forefront of energy storage devices due to their ability to fulfill quick power requirements. However, safety and cost are important parameters for their real-world applications. Green materials-based electrodes and electro...

Magnesium oxide loaded mesoporous silica: Synthesis, characterisation and use in removing lead and cadmium from water supplies (2023)
Journal Article

Water pollution by potentially toxic elements such as cadmium (Cd) and lead (Pb) is a persistent problem in many parts of the world. It continues to have profound implications for drinking water supplies, wastewater discharge and environmental qualit...

Using the solid injection technique with gas chromatography and mass spectrometry to identify cuticular hydrocarbons in several thrips insect species (2023)
Thesis

Thrips are a group of insects included in the order Thysanoptera. So far, over 6000 species have been described, among which over 100 are known as crop pests There is a plethora of studies on various species of thrips, yet the CHC composition is know...

Supramolecular Polymer Polymorphism: Spontaneous Helix-Helicoid Transition through Dislocation of Hydrogen-Bonded π-Rosettes. (2023)
Journal Article

Polymorphism, a phenomenon whereby disparate self-assembled products can be formed from identical molecules, has incited interest in the field of supramolecular polymers. Conventionally, the monomers that constitute supramolecular polymers are engine...

Indolo[2,3- e ]benzazocines and indolo[2,3- f ]benzazonines and their copper( ii ) complexes as microtubule destabilizing agents † (2023)
Journal Article

A series of four indolo[2,3-e]benzazocines HL1–HL4 and two indolo[2,3-f]benzazonines HL5 and HL6, as well as their respective copper(ii) complexes 1–6, were synthesized and characterized by 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy, ESI mass spectrometry, single c...

The evaluation of a metabonomic approach to detect decomposition products in water and leachates using Liquid Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (2023)
Thesis

Statistics show that there was a 12% increase in missing persons’ incidents in the UK between 2014 and 2019. Approximately 50% of these missing individuals are found within 24 hours, and on average a large number will be deceased. Land-based searches...

‘Rough Critical Winds’: Mis-selling English Pastoral in H. E. Bates’s Larkin Novels, 1958-1970’ (2023)
Journal Article

The revival of interest in H. E. Bates has largely come without much attention being paid to his series of five novels featuring the Larkin family (1958-1970). The neglect is because of their populist and comic mode. Yet, study of the Larkin novels e... Read More about ‘Rough Critical Winds’: Mis-selling English Pastoral in H. E. Bates’s Larkin Novels, 1958-1970’.

Low sulfated heparan sulfate mimetic differentially affects repair in immune-mediated and toxin-induced experimental models of demyelination. (2023)
Journal Article

There is an urgent need for therapies that target the multicellular pathology of central nervous system (CNS) disease. Modified, nonanticoagulant heparins mimic the heparan sulfate glycan family and are known regulators of multiple cellular processes...

Synthesis of alpha-amino acid derived (1,2,3-triazol-4-yl)-picolinamide (tzpa) ligands and their corresponding luminescent Tb(iii) complexes (2023)
Journal Article

The synthesis of chiral a-amino acid derived (1,2,3-triazol-4-yl)-picolinamide (tzpa) ligands 4-6 designed by combining the coordination properties of two well-known ligand structures within a single unit is described. The self-assembly formation bet... Read More about Synthesis of alpha-amino acid derived (1,2,3-triazol-4-yl)-picolinamide (tzpa) ligands and their corresponding luminescent Tb(iii) complexes.

Fine-tuning of the size of supramolecular nanotoroids suppresses the subsequent catenation of nano-[2]catenane (2023)
Journal Article

A judicious combination of ring-closing supramolecular polymerization and secondary nucleation can hierarchically organize a diphenylnaphthalene barbiturate monomer bearing a 3,4,5-tri(dodecyloxy)benzyloxy unit into self-assembled nano-polycatenanes...
