the p-p binding concept is so successful
that pi acceptors are not only being attached to inorganic and biopolymer
latex particles, but are also being incorporated into the less efficient
microemulsion and microgel dispersed phases discussed. All of the
advances in the various approaches described have been made during
2001, and it is anticipated that in 2002 the dispersed phase giving
the best in vitro result will be evaluated in vivo. Beyond restoring
human health from an overdose of legally administered therapeutic
agents, the research program has the potential of producing nanoparticles
capable of detoxifying a wide variety of molecules used by addicts
and terrorist groups.
As a result of this work, Professor Partch has been
contacted by personnel at Walter Reed Army Hospital regarding possible
use of his particle surface modification technology to inactivate
anthrax spores in the lung by preventing them from being encapsulated
by macrophage and transported through the lung membrane and into

Professor Anja Mueller Investigates the Use of Fuel Cells
CAMP Professor Anja Mueller, of Clarkson University's Department
of Chemistry, is investigating the influence of environmental
toxins on biological energy production by using a biological
fuel cell. The fuel cell is being built using the enzymes
the body uses for energy generation on the electrodes as well
as in solution for fuel regeneration. Energy generation is
one of the two major systems in the body most commonly affected
by environmental toxins. Professor Mueller's fuel cell will
be a convenient screening tool for these toxins, since the
toxicity of a compound can be measured as a reduction of voltage.
A thorough characterization of the electron transfer at the
enzyme electrodes, used in the fuel cell, will be performed
by CAMP Professor Ian Suni.
