ASU Electronic Theses and Dissertations


This collection includes most of the ASU Theses and Dissertations from 2011 to present. ASU Theses and Dissertations are available in downloadable PDF format; however, a small percentage of items are under embargo. Information about the dissertations/theses includes degree information, committee members, an abstract, supporting data or media.

In addition to the electronic theses found in the ASU Digital Repository, ASU Theses and Dissertations can be found in the ASU Library Catalog.

Dissertations and Theses granted by Arizona State University are archived and made available through a joint effort of the ASU Graduate College and the ASU Libraries. For more information or questions about this collection contact or visit the Digital Repository ETD Library Guide or contact the ASU Graduate College at gradformat@asu.edu.


One goal of geobiochemistry is to follow geochemical energy supplies from the external environment to the inside of microbial cells. This can be accomplished by combining thermodynamic calculations of energy supplies from geochemical processes and energy demands for biochemical processes. Progress towards this goal is summarized here. A critique of all thermodynamic data for biochemical compounds involved in the citric acid cycle (CAC) and the formulation of metabolite properties allows predictions of the energy involved in each step of the cycle as well as the full forward and reverse cycles over wide ranges of temperature and pressure. These results allow …
