Influence of acyl groups on glucopyranoside reactivity in Lewis acid promoted anomerisation
(Elsevier, 20180526)Lewis acid promoted anomerisation has potential in O or Sglycoside synthesis. Herein, the anomerisation kinetics of thirtyone Î²dglucopyranosides was determined to determine how particular acyl protecting groups and ... 
Revealing biomedically relevant cell and lectin typedependent structure–activity profiles for glycoclusters by using tissue sections as an assay platform
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 20180814)The increasing realization of the involvement of lectinglycan recognition in (patho)physiological processes inspires envisioning therapeutic intervention by highavidity/specificity blocking reagents. Synthetic glycoclusters ... 
Experimental assessment of MRIinduced temperature change and SAR distributions in phantoms
(NUI Galway, 20171114)During an MR procedure, most of the transmitted RF power is transformed into heat within the patients’ tissue resulting from resistive losses, referred to as the specific energy absorption rate(SAR) (2). The EU standardisation ... 
Snake venom potency and yield are associated with prey‐evolution, predator metabolism and habitat structure
(Wiley, 20190107)Snake venom is well known for its ability to incapacitate and kill prey. Yet, potency and the amount of venom available varies greatly across species, ranging from the seemingly harmless to those capable of killing vast ... 
Merging carbohydrate chemistry with lectin histochemistry to study inhibition of lectin binding by glycoclusters in the natural tissue context
(Springer, 20151109)Recognition of glycans by lectins leads to cell adhesion and growth regulation. The specificity and selectivity of this process are determined by carbohydrate structure (sequence and shape) and topology of its presentation. ... 
Anomer preferences for glucuronic and galacturonic acid and derivatives and influence of electronwithdrawing substituents
(American Chemical Society, 20180704)Equilibrium anomeric ratios are reported for pyranoses (hemiacetals) of glucuronic and galacturonic acid and their derivatives. These are compared to related gluco and galactopyranoses and to deoxyfluorogluco and ... 
Teaming up synthetic chemistry and histochemistry for activity screening in galectindirected inhibitor design
(Springer, 20160624)A hallmark of endogenous lectins is their ability to select a few distinct glycoconjugates as counterreceptors for functional pairing from the natural abundance of cellular glycoproteins and glycolipids. As a consequence, ... 
Advances in rapid compression machine studies of low and intermediatetemperature autoignition phenomena
(Elsevier, 20170710)Rapid compression machines (RCMs) are widely used to acquire experimental insights into fuel autoignition and pollutant formation chemistry, especially at conditions relevant to current and future combustion technologies. ... 
A chemical kinetic interpretation of the octane appetite of modern gasoline engines
(Elsevier, 20180629)Fuel antiknock quality is a critical property with respect to the effective design of nextgeneration sparkignition engines which aim to have increased efficiency, and lower emissions. Increasing evidence in the literature ... 
Developing detailed chemical kinetic mechanisms for fuel combustion
(Elsevier, 20180701)This paper discusses a brief history of chemical kinetic modeling, with some emphasis on the development of chemical kinetic mechanisms describing fuel oxidation. At high temperatures, the important reactions tend to be ... 
Small ester combustion chemistry: Computational kinetics and experimental study of methyl acetate and ethyl acetate
(Elsevier, 20180717)Small esters represent an important class of high octane biofuels for advanced spark ignition engines. They qualify for stringent fuel screening standards and could be synthesized through various pathways. In this work, ... 
New experimental insights into acetylene oxidation through novel ignition delay times, laminar burning velocities and chemical kinetic modelling
(Elsevier, 20180803)The oxidation of acetylene is central to the oxidation of virtually all hydrocarbon fuels. It is also important for commercial industry, due to its wide range of applications such as flame photometry, atomic absorption, ... 
Genus two partition and correlation functions for fermionic vertex operator superalgebras II
(20181018)We define and compute the continuous orbifold partition function and a generating function for all npoint correlation functions for the rank two free fermion vertex operator superalgebra on a genus two Riemann surface ... 
Genus two zhu theory for vertex operator algebras
(20161027)We consider correlation functions for a vertex operator algebra on a genus two Riemann surface formed by sewing two tori together. We describe a generalisation of genus one Zhu recursion where we express an arbitrary genus ... 
N=2 and N=4 subalgebras of super vertex operator algebras
(IOP Publishing, 20180110)We develop criteria to decide if an N=2 or N=4 super conformal algebra is a subalgebra of a super vertex operator algebra in general, and of a super lattice theory in particular. We give some specific examples. 
Zhu reduction for Jacobi npoint functions and applications
(20170623)We establish precise Zhu reduction formulas for Jacobi npoint functions which show the absence of any possible poles arising in these formulas. We then exploit this to produce results concerning the structure of strongly ... 
Genus two virasoro correlation functions for vertex operator algebras
(20161206)We consider all genus two correlation functions for the Virasoro vacuum descendants of a vertex operator algebra. These are described in terms of explicit generating functions that can be combinatorially expressed in terms ... 
On exceptional vertex operator (Super) algebras
(Springer, 20141001)We consider exceptional vertex operator algebras and vertex operator superalgebras with the property that particular Casimir vectors constructed from the primary vectors of lowest conformal weight are Virasoro descendents ... 
Vertex algebras according to Isaac Newton
(IOP Publishing, 20170908)We give an introduction to vertex algebras using elementary forward difference methods originally due to Isaac Newton. 
An experimental, theoretical, and modeling study of the ignition behavior of cyclopentanone
(Elsevier, 20180705)The ignition delay times of cyclopentanone in air were measured using a high pressure shock tube (HPST) and a rapid compression machine (RCM) over the temperature range of 7941368 K at P = 15 and 30 bar and at equivalence ...
