The Synthesis Dilemma

I apologize for not posting as much as I probably should, but up to this point, despite a large number of trials and theories, very little overall progress has been made, due to a number of extenuating conditions. Let’s talk.

Nano-Sized, Fluorescence-Driven pH Probes and Modifiers

Hello hello!

My name is Aaron Bayles, and I’m a sophomore at the College, currently studying abroad in Sevilla, Spain. Before I left for the semester, I was working in Dr. Harbron’s chemistry lab, investigating a particular set of fluorescent polymer nanoparticles that can both provide information about the acidity of a solution via the fluorescence of the molecules, as well as modify the pH through exposure to UV radiation. And I’ll be coming back to continue this research this summer!
