    I present the results of three spectroscopic projects. First, we analysed spectra of acetylene diluted by carbon dioxide (CO2) in the R-branch region of the v1+v3 combination vibrational band (6470-6618 cm-1). The spectra ...
  • Aladedunye, Adekunle F. (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Chemistry and Biochemistry, 2011Arts and ScienceDepartment of Chemistry and Biochemistry, 2011)
    The present study sought for practical ways to improve the frying performance of oils without compromising the availability of the essential fatty acids and nutraceuticals. To this end, the influence of temperature, ...
  • Fischer, Jeffrey J.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2007Arts and ScienceDepartment of Chemistry and Biochemistry, 2007)
    Protein synthesis is a highly conserved process across all domains of life, both structurally and functionally. This cyclic process is catalyzed by numerous soluble protein factors that interact with the ribosome to ...
  • Coatham, Mackenzie Leigh (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Chemistry and BiochemistryArts and ScienceDepartment of Chemistry and Biochemistry, 2014)
    The functional roles of the two universally conserved bacterial GTPases, HflX and YchF, are poorly understood. Both proteins associate with 70S ribosomes as well as 30S and 50S ribosomal subunits. Understanding exactly how ...
  • Sillito, G. Nathan; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Education (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Education, c2013Education, 2013)
    This study is an examination of what teacher preparation institutions in the Canadian province of Alberta are teaching student teachers about ‘assessment-for-learning’ practices. A large body of research exists to show ...
