Abstract:

An amino acid hydrolysis and analysis system is requested from the Air Force Defense Research Science Program. The proposed instrumentation will further the current research effort funded by AFOSR, namely the Site Directed Nucleation and Growth of Ceramic Films on Metallic Surfaces by allowing for the qualitative and quantitative analysis of amino acids that composed the proteinaceous polymers found at the interface between calcite crystals deposited by oyster cells and the various metal substrates.
