Leah Krause '14
Leah Krause ’14 is Co-Pi on Successful NSF Supercomputing Grant

Senior Chemistry concentrator Leah Krause is a co-Principal Investigator on a successful  proposal through the National Science Foundation’s Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) program. Acceptance of her proposal grants Krause 100,000 hours of computational time on the Texas Advanced Computing Center’s “Stampede” supercomputer, currently the 6th fastest supercomputer in the world.  More ...

Tim Elgren
New York Times Features Elgren Letter

Professor of Chemistry Tim Elgren’s response to a New York Times article appeared as the lead letter in the paper’s Aug. 27 Science Times section. Writing in response to “Is There Danger Lurking in Your Lipstick?,” Elgren pointed out that “We are exposed to harmful chemicals every day, often unnecessarily so. The 1976 Toxic Substance Control Act grandfathered in more than 60,000 chemicals and does little to protect public health or the environment.”  More ...

John DeGuardi '16 isolates isotopes to determine the age of a black shale sample.
John DeGuardi ’16 Analyzes Black Shale

John DeGuardi ’16 is a chemistry major but spent two months this summer working out the age of Woody Island Siltstone, an unusual black shale found in Tasmania, Australia. He and Adrien Hilmy ’13 were awarded a Dickson-Rodgers summer research stipend and worked in a high tech laboratory at the University of Houston.  More ...

Chemistry Students Present at MERCURY Conference

Four Hamilton students presented their research at the 12th Molecular Educational Research Consortium in Undergraduate Computational chemistRY (MERCURY) conference held July 25-27 at Bucknell University.  More ...

Lisbeth DaBramo ’15 and Rachel Sobel ’15 Search for BPA

Because Bisphenol A, or BPA, has been identified as a factor in conditions including obesity, ADHD, reproductive complications and behavioral abnormalities, consumers and health officials have been alarmed at the presence of the chemical in food and drink products for years. In a summer research project,  Lisbeth DaBramo ’15 and Rachel Sobel ’15 are measuring BPA levels in bottles and cans to identify how this toxic compound is introduced into our systems.  More ...

Organic Chemistry Researchers Attend SmORS

The Kinnel research group – Sky Aulita ’15, Krystina Choinski ’15, Tara Hansen ’14, Shakil Hossain ’14, Laura McCormick’15 and Bryce Timm ’15 – participated in a symposium for undergraduate organic chemistry research students on July 2 at Hobart and William Smith (HWS) Colleges.  More ...

Ian Rosenstein
Rosenstein Presents Poster at National Organic Symposium

Associate Professor of Chemistry Ian Rosenstein attended the National Organic Symposium from June 25-28 at the University of Washington in Seattle.  This biennial conference, held by the Organic Division of the American Chemical Society, features invited talks on cutting edge research in all aspects of organic chemistry plus several hundred poster presentations.  More ...

Karen Brewer
Brewer Attends NSF-Funded IONiC Workshop at Penn State

Professor of Chemistry Karen S. Brewer,  along with 20 other inorganic chemistry faculty and four graduate students from across the country attended the workshop “VIPEr: Solid State Materials for Alternative Energy Needs.”  More ...

Catherine Oglevee '15 and Laura Rivera '16
Students Examine Luminescence of Rare Earth Sol-gel Metals

The world of technology is changing at a rapid pace and new materials need to be utilized to make further advancements.  Rare earth metals are in a strong position to be more widely used for various applications, ranging from small electronic devices to large television screens. Laura Rivera ’16 and Catherine Oglevee ’15 are working with terbium and europium, two rare earth metals, this summer to understand their fluorescent properties.  More ...

Ashleigh Stephan '15 and Jacob Wagner '15
Preserving Proteins with Advanced Sol-Gel Technique

Enzymes and proteins, typically when left unattended or unprotected, can easily lose their structural integrity and fall apart. Sol-Gel is an emerging material that helps encapsulate the enzymes and protect them from the dangers of degradation. The technology can be used in numerous applications, one of them being a new method for slow-release medications. These slow release medicines allow for the introduction of necessary chemicals over a period of time, avoiding any negative side effects from releasing all the medication at once.  More ...
