Physiologically Stable Fluorophore And Performing Fluorescence Probing

NIST Inventors
Jeremiah Woodcock and Professor Douglas M. Fox
A physiologically stable fluorophore includes a terminal moiety including a terminal reactive site that reacts with a reactive group of a substrate; a stability linker covalently bonded to the terminal moiety; and a bridge moiety covalently bonded to the stability linker such that the stability

Physiologically Stable Fluorophore For Digestion Toxicology Studies

NIST Inventors
Jeremiah Woodcock and Professor Douglas M. Fox
The diversity of materials used industrially has been increasing, as well as the demand for more renewable feed stocks. As a result, new strategies to assay the impact on the environment and human physiology is needed. Typical methods involving radioactive isotopic labeling and fluorescent labeling

Ferrocene-Bodipy: A Single Electron Transfer Activatable Fluorescent Molecular Probe

NIST Inventors
Jeremiah Woodcock and Veronika Szalai
Industrial electrochemical processes have been growing in importance for decades. However, with the need for improved efficiency in these processes comes the need for better fundamental understanding. For example, improved battery performance requires accessible, more precise metrology to aid in
