George Shields, professor and chair of chemistry at Hamilton College, received a $50,000 grant from the American Chemical Society/Petroleum Research Fund to support research on "Accurate Calculation of pKa Values." He has published four papers on the topic, all co-authored by Hamilton undergraduates. The funding for this research will be used to identify computational methods that can be used to calculate accurate pKa values. Shields will use quantum chemistry methods and thermodynamic cycles to systematically study a broad range of molecules. The goal is to calculate the pKa for any molecule with an accuracy of half a pKa unit. More ...
Barbara McMartin lecture, "The Adirondacks: Public Activism and Political Rigidity"
Noted author Barbara McMartin delivered a lecture, "The Adirondacks: Public Activism and Political Rigidity," on Feb. 27 in the Fillius Events Barn. McMartin, a resident of the Adirondacks, is the author of Adirondack guidebooks and other books on the forest preserve. In her talk sponsored by the Environmental Studies program, McMartin spoke about the role of public activism and political rigidity in the history of the Adirondacks. McMartin presented cases where attempts to enhance appreciation of the wilderness have been skewed or hindered by disagreements or ineffective governance. More ...

The eyes may be the windows of a person's soul, but you can also tell a lot about your colleagues by what's on their office door. Here's what we uncovered during a recent stroll through campus. If you know of other interesting doors, drop an e-mail to ath@hamilton.edu. We could be knocking on your door soon! More ...
Chemistry in an Egg
Students from Thomas R. Proctor High School attended Science Day on March 22. Professors from biology, chemistry, and psychology exposed students to the world of science exploration. Ram Subramaniam and SueAnn Senior of the chemistry department explained to the students how chemicals are used to separate the components of an egg. The yolk was separated into protein and lipid (fat)components and students determined that the yellow color originated from the lipid. SueAnn Senior suggested that a practical way to learn more about chemistry is to learn how to cook and observe how a change in temperature can affect the ingredients. More ...

Diggins Leads Campus Tree Walk
Visiting Assistant Professor of Biology Thomas Diggins led a walk on April 10 teaching students about the tree species found on campus and some natural history of New York. The walk was open to all students interested, and was geared towards all knowledge levels. More than 25 types of tree were identified, including American elm, swamp white oak, Kentucky coffeetree and ginkgo, which is considered to be a living fossil. More ...
