“Molecular Syntheses of Extended Materials”
Presented by Daniel Paley (Nuckolls Group)
Wednesday, May 27, 2015 at 3:00pm
Room 209 Havemeyer
Bottom-up molecular synthesis is a route to chemically and crystallographically uniform polymers and solid-state materials. Through the use of molecular precursors, we gain atomic-level control of functionality and fine-tuning of the collective properties of materials. I will present two studies that demonstrate this approach.
Ring-opening alkyne metathesis polymerization is a possible approach to monodisperse conjugated polymers, but its applications have been limited by difficult syntheses and high air sensitivity of known organometallic ROAMP initiators. We designed a dimeric, air-stable molybdenum alkylidyne with a tris(phenolate) supporting ligand. The precatalyst is activated by addition of methanol and polymerizes cyclooctynes with excellent chemical selectivity and functional group tolerance.
The Nuckolls and Roy groups have introduced a new family of solid-state compounds synthesized from cobalt chalcogenide clusters Co6Q8(PR3)6 and fullerenes. The first examples of these materials crystallized in superatom lattices with the symmetry of simple inorganic solids CdI2 (P-3m1) and NaCl (Fm-3m). Further members of the family have displayed extraordinary diversity of structure, including a pseudo-trigonal array of fulleride dimers in [Co6Te8(PEt3)6]2[C140][C70]2 and a heterolayered van der Waals cocrystal [Co6Se8(PEt2phen)6][C60]5. In addition to these unusual crystal structures, I will present a method for assigning redox states from crystallographic data in Co6Q8 clusters.

Have you heard all the chatter about "big data" lately? Do you know what it is? Or what issues are at stake with the capture and analysis of these numbers? (You can see President Susan Fuhrman's (Ph.D. '77) recent thoughts on the privacy component here and here.) What are the ways "big data" is affecting education and the work being done at TC? The truth is, "big data" probably impacts your life more than you know, and it's certainly influencing many fields of study here at the College Â– especially Data Analytics, Professor Ryan Baker's field of expertise! If you're interested learning more about this hot topic and his research regarding the intersection of educational data mining (EDM) and human-computer interaction, please come join us in London on May 28. Baker will be speaking at the "What the Research Says" Seminar Series at London Knowledge Lab and serving as a guest speaker for an intimate gathering of Teachers College alumni and guests at the London home of alumna Mariam Korangy (M.A. '98). Whether you're interested in big data, online learning environments, or simply a chance to mix and mingle with other alumni in the area, we hope you'll join us for this special day in London.

To honor the 150th anniversary of the end of the Civil War, the Cornell and Columbia Clubs of Washington present an all-day guided bus trip to Petersburg/Richmond and other sites of the last days of the Civil War. We will start the trip with a visit to the Cold Harbor battlefield, one of the bloodiest of the Civil War. We will continue to Ulysses S. Grant's HQ at the siege of Petersburg, which includes a working plantation. Then we will go on to various parts of the Confederate and Union lines, including the Crater, where the Union exposed a giant mine to blast a hole in the Confederate defenses, and Blandford Cemetery, where over 30,000 Confederate fatalities of the battle are buried. We will have lunch on the battlefield and go the VisitorÂ’s Center. Finally, on the way back, we will visit the Tredegar Iron Works, the largest producer of Confederate artillery during the war and site of a statute of Abraham Lincoln commemorating his famous visit to Richmond in April 1865. Our guide will be Cornell Professor David Silbey, a Cornell alumnus and military historian who has published widely on modern warfare and has long experience walking Civil War Battlefields. David Silbey is a military historian, focusing on modern warfare. Dr. Silbey's first book, The British Working Class and Enthusiasm for War, 1914-1916 was published by Taylor & Francis in 2005. His second book, A War of Empire and Frontier: The Philippine-American War, 1899-1902 was published by Hill & Wang in Spring 2007. His third book, The Boxer Rebellion and the Great Game in China, 1900 was published by Hill & Wang in March 2012. He received his BA from Cornell and his MA and Ph.D from Duke University.

Bring a friend, grab a drink, and join some of today’s most interesting performers onstage at Miller Theatre on select early evenings. The American Contemporary Music Ensemble presents works from fast-rising star Timo Andres, whose music “achieves an unhurried grandeur that has rarely been felt in American music since John Adams came on the scene” (The New Yorker). The program draws inspiration from diverse sources, including Schumann’s solo piano works and February weather in New England. The four sections of Thrive on Routine—“Morning,” “Potatoes,” “Passacaglia,” and “Coda”—are modeled after a description of composer Charles Ives' daily schedule, which involved rising early to dig potatoes and play Bach. Concert starts at 6 p.m. Admissison is on a first-come, first-served basis, and doors open at 5:30 p.m.
