Water pollution from emerging contaminants is increasingly in the spotlight, as research on the impacts on the environment is revealing more about the dangers to both animals in the aquatic environment and human health. Pharmaceuticals, personal care... Read More about Sporopollenin : applications in water purification.

Evaluation of small molecule inhibitors of Pin1 for their effects on tissue factor within tumour cells (2019)
Thesis
Adeniran, O. I. (2019). Evaluation of small molecule inhibitors of Pin1 for their effects on tissue factor within tumour cells. (Thesis). University of Hull. Retrieved from https://hull-repository.worktribe.com/output/4222358

Most standard anticancer drugs are non-selective in their cytotoxicity towards cancerous versus normal cells. Therefore, there is a need for the development of selective and targeted anticancer agents. Previous studies have reported upregulation of t...

Chemically modified sporopollenin as a solid support for heterogeneous catalysts (2019)
Thesis
Abimbade, S. F. (2019). Chemically modified sporopollenin as a solid support for heterogeneous catalysts. (Thesis). University of Hull. Retrieved from https://hull-repository.worktribe.com/output/4222418

Application of the principles of ‘Green Chemistry’ has been a focus in recent years in the synthesis of fine chemicals, and solid-phase catalysts are useful tools in that endeavour compared to stoichiometric reagents. Another important principle of ‘... Read More about Chemically modified sporopollenin as a solid support for heterogeneous catalysts.

The modulation of Transient Receptor Potential A1 channel by natural and novel semi-synthetic compounds via non-covalent modification (2016)
Thesis
Knaggs, J. D. (2016). The modulation of Transient Receptor Potential A1 channel by natural and novel semi-synthetic compounds via non-covalent modification. (Thesis). Hull York Medical School, the University of Hull and the University of York. Retrieved from https://hull-repository.worktribe.com/output/4219218

Transient Receptor Potential A1 (TRPA1) is commonly known as the detector of a broad range of noxious chemical agents both exogenous and endogenous. TRPA1 detects these chemicals through a reversible covalent modification mechanism that allows most e...

Synthesis of porphyrins and metalloporphyrins for biological applications (2005)
Thesis
Ita, S. (2005). Synthesis of porphyrins and metalloporphyrins for biological applications. (Thesis). University of Hull. Retrieved from https://hull-repository.worktribe.com/output/4221109

Porphyrins are ideal candidates for PDT (Photodynamic therapy). Their ability to localise preferentially in diseased tissue allows specific targeting of cancerous tissue in certain areas. In recent years, linking photosensitisers to sugar moieties ha... Read More about Synthesis of porphyrins and metalloporphyrins for biological applications.
