I peevishly plodded into the Philadelphia Museum of Art on a brisk Saturday afternoon, hung-over, not necessarily in the mood to be analyzing artwork. I had not been to a museum in ages, so I was not exactly sure what to expect. As I dragged my disheveled and tentative self throughout the building, it became . . .
Saint Joseph's University Archives
I attended Saint Joseph's University from 2006 to 2010. I started off majoring in Biology, switched to Chemistry after being terrified of the memorization required for Organismic Biology, and finished with a 3.56 GPA.
Abstract Vaska’s complex, Ir(Cl)[P(C6H5)3]2(CO), reacts with O2 at room temperature to form Ir(Cl)[P(C6H5)3]2(CO)(O2) at a ratio of 3.11:1 reactant to product and with HCl to form Ir(Cl)2[P(C6H5)3]2(CO)H at 47.7% yield. The CO stretch on the IR spectra of these compounds is found at a lower frequency than . . .
Purpose To develop an understanding of how light is refracted, to apply the concept of refraction to the study of how thin lenses form images, to learn to draw ray diagrams to assist in the predicting the locations of images formed by spherical thin lenses, and to determine the focal length of a converging . . .
Abstract Self-enhancement is the desire to maintain and cultivate positive feelings of the self. It is the driving force behind the search for self-knowledge, and is thus the focal point of much clinical research. While several researchers suggest that self-enhancement is integral to an individual’s . . .
Purpose To develop an understanding of the Law of Reflection, to apply the Law of Reflection to finding images formed by plane and spherical mirrors, and to learn to draw ray diagrams to assist in predicting the locations of images formed by spherical concave mirrors. Hypothesis According to the Law of . . .
Abstract The reaction of RuCl2(PPh3)2, THF, and diphenylpropargyl alcohol under reflux yields C51H40P2Cl2Ru in 46% yield. 1H NMR spectroscopy of C51H40P2Cl2Ru shows a series of overlapping peaks at δ 7.3-7.8. C51H40P2Cl2Ru can then react with dichloromethane and tricyclohexylphosphine to form C51H76Cl2P2Ru. . . .
Purpose To understand the magnetic field generated by a long, straight, current-carrying conductor, the behavior of a conductor carrying a constant current in a magnetic field, and to verify the relationship associated with the force between two current-carrying conductors and the current in the . . .
I. Introduction The word perfection is thrown around quite often, but what exactly does perfection mean and is it humanly possible to fathom such an idea? The New Oxford American Dictionary defines perfection as “the condition, state, or quality of being free or as free as possible from all flaws or . . .
Purpose To measure and determine the relationship between a magnetic field generated by a line of current and a radial distance from a conductor, and to measure and determine the relationship between a magnetic field at the center of a coil and the number of turns in a coil. Hypothesis As the distance from . . .
Purpose To investigate the current flow and voltages in series and parallel circuits, and also to use Ohm’s law to calculate equivalent resistances of series and parallel circuits. Hypothesis The calculated equivalent resistances for the series circuits will abide by the equation Req = R1 + R2 and for the . . .
