"X-Ray Crystal Structures of 5,5-Diethyl- and 5,5-Dimethyl-2-phenoxy-1,3,2-dioxaphosphorinan-2-one" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Oklahoma Research Day, Cameron University, Lawton, OK, Nov 12, 2010 <Not Available>. 2019-11-21 <>

Abstract: A number of six-atom cyclic phosphates, phosphonates, and phosphoamides have shown some potency against liver diseases. The mechanism of ring opening has been suggested to be important. Therefore, we are pursuing structural clues as to the stereochemistry of the ring-opening reaction. X-ray crystal structures have been determined for two representative cyclic phosphates. The space group of the structure of 5,5-Diethyl-2-phenoxy-1,3,2-dioxaphosphorinan-2-one is P 1 with a=6.425(4)Å, b=10.013(4)Å, c=10.680(4)Å, α=90.03(4)°, β=97.50(4)°, γ=90.09(4)°. Because the P-O bonds within the phosphate ring have the same bond length (1.54 ±0.04Å), ring opening is not anticipated to be stereospecific. In addition, the C-O bonds within the phosphate ring are equivalent (1.46±.03Å) suggesting again a lack of stereospecificity. Crystals of title compound, 5,5-Dimethyl-2-phenoxy-1,3,2-dioxaphosphorinan-2-one, were also of the P 1 space group with with a=6.317(3)Å, b=9.127(2)Å, c=10.580(2)Å, α=89.99(2)°, β=92.70(2)°, γ=90.02(2)°. The most notable interaction appears to be a van der Waal’s interaction between the phosphoryl oxygen on one molecule and a hydrogen atom bonded to the aromatic ring on a neighboring molecule.

Publication Type: Informal Discussion Roundtable
Abstract: A recent study (Finer 2007) suggests that about 95% of Americans have had premarital heterosexual vaginal sex by age 44. Not only is this indication alarming but it also calls into question publicly funded programs aimed at promoting abstinence among teenagers. Furthermore, this finding underscores the need for continued research geared towards the explication of the phenomenon of premarital sex.

The proposed Roundtable joins and furthers the discourse on the nature of premarital sexuality. The discussion will be guided by data that derived from a convenience sample at a conservative religious university. 656 students from a total school population of close to 3000 responded to the survey.

While there is an indication that more than 50% of respondents have not had premarital sex, logistic regression outputs distinguished respondents’ premarital sexual behavior by academic performance, religious involvement, and parent/child relationship. Specifically, the odds of participants engaging in premarital sex are inversely related to their grade point averages, their frequency in personal prayer and church attendance, and the perception of their relationship with their parents.

The Roundtable will discuss the implications of these findings and suggest possible policy measures.

Publication Type: Poster
Abstract: Precatory language is often insufficient to create a legally binding trust. Men and women choose different language to express themselves. What is the connection between these two statements?

This article reviews the current status of the law of precatory language, concluding that whether a will including precatory words (such as wish, ask, or recommend) will be construed to create a trust is at best a hit or miss proposition. The article continues to explore the psychology literature on differences in language ability and expression between men and women. Finally, the article ties these two disciplines together, analyzing original empirical data collected from 324 subjects and concluding that women are indeed more likely to use precatory language than men. The article concludes by noting the impact our heightened understanding of gender and precatory language has for courts, legal scholars, and practicing attorneys.

"Serving 5 to Life, Racial Disparities in the Enforcement of Drug Sentencing Laws in Georgia" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Southern Political Science Association, Hotel Intercontinental, New Orleans, LA, Jan 07, 2009 Online <PDF>. 2019-11-21 <>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: A 1996 Human Rights Watch Report entitled “Human Rights Violations in Drug Enforcement in Georgia” revealed that at the end of the 20th century, racial disparities in the treatment of African American and white drug users were prevalent. Specifically, the reports states that “Georgia's drug laws by their terms are racially neutral, but application of these drugs laws has had a disproportional effect on blacks. Before the "war on drugs" was launched in the mid 1980s, more whites than blacks were arrested for drug offenses. By the end of the decade, blacks were arrested for drugs more than twice as often as whites. The disparity continues into the 1990s. Although blacks make up less than one-third of the population of Georgia, 64.2% of those arrested for drugs between 1990 and 1995 were black. In each of those years, comparing the rate of arrests per 100,000 adult males the black arrest rate was five times greater than the white arrest rate. Comparing the ratio of actual arrests to population reveals that whites were arrested for cocaine offenses (447.2 per 100,000 adults) at a rate of one-seventeenth the rate for blacks (7668.4 per 100,000 adults).”

At the turn of the 21st century, the color line still appears to be in existence as it relates to law enforcement. In spite of the progress of African Americans in Georgia in the political arena, from mayors and state legislatures, to congress, the prison system has continued to be a mechanism to control elements of the African American population. The War on Drugs has resulted in long-term prison sentences even for non-violent drug offenders. This paper will explore the evolution of drug sentencing laws in the state of Georgia and the subsequent enforcement of those laws with an attempt to provide an understanding of why the disparities in arrests, convictions and sentencing exists. The paper will rely on resources from the state legislature of Georgia, the Georgia Crime Information Center, the Georgia Department of Corrections, and the Georgia State Board of Pardons and Paroles, and other pertinent research data and literature in this field.
