Tim Elgren
Elgren Co-Authors Article on Hydrogen Gas Production

A paper co-authored by Professor of Chemistry Tim Elgren was recently published in the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry. “Photo-induced H2 production by [NiFe]-hydrogenase from T. roseopersicina covalently linked to a Ru(II) photosensitizer” was written in collaboration with scientists at Montana State University. Hydrogenases are enzymes that convert protons and electrons into hydrogen gas.  More ...

Chris Boisvert '12 and Nicole Snyder
Snyder and Boisvert ’12 Publish Book Chapter

Assistant Professor of Chemistry Nicole L. Snyder and Christopher J. Boisvert ’12 recently published a chapter on the Hantzch Reaction in Named Reactions in Heterocyclic Chemistry II, one of the books in Jie Jack Li’s Named Organic Reaction series.  More ...

Hydrates - Up Close and Personal

Certain chemical structures called clathrate hydrates can be found on the bottom of our oceans or built in a lab. This summer seven students are working with Assistant Professor of Chemistry Camille Jones to conduct research related to hydrates, including examinations of different hydrate properties.  More ...

Cotten, Students Visit National High Magnetic Field Lab

Associate Professor of Chemistry Myriam Cotten and her research team spent 10 days this summer at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Tallahassee, Fla., to study piscidins, antimicrobial peptides from fish. Student researchers were Akritee Shrestha ’13, Christopher Rider ’12,  Leah Cairns ’13, Robert Hayden ’14 and Victoria Bogen ’14.  More ...

Separating Chemicals in Solutions Proves Challenging

The chemicals in pharmaceutical drugs must be carefully controlled to ensure that only one specific 3-D arrangement of each molecule ends up in the drug. However, separating very similar chemicals from a solution can pose significant challenges to researchers. This summer four students are working under Visiting Assistant Professor of Chemistry Timothy Chapp to separate phosphine enantiomers.  More ...

Students Seek Solution to Peptide Structure

Piscidin is an antimicrobial peptide found in hybrid striped bass which binds to cell membranes in order to destroy them. Victoria Bogen ’14, Robert Hayden ’14, Akritee Shrestha ’13, Leah Cairns ’13 and Christopher Rider ’12 are working with Associate Professor of Chemistry Myriam Cotten to conduct research on piscidin. Their research aims to solve the peptide’s structure and behavior in various conditions.  More ...

Robin Kinnel
Kinnel Presents at Pharmacognosy Meeting

Silas D. Childs Professor of Chemistry Emeritus Robin B. Kinnel presented a poster titled “Two Unusual Chlorinated Metabolites from Lyngbya bouillonii Revealed by MALDI Analysis” at the 52nd national meeting of the American Society of Pharmacognosy on Aug. 1 in San Diego. The work, accomplished primarily while he was on sabbatical leave at Scripps Institution of Oceanography during the spring of 2010, capitalized on a new technique for discovering potentially useful natural products.  More ...

Students Synthesize Newly-Discovered Molecule

Chemistry Professor Robin Kinnel has recently discovered the chemical compound dichlorobouillonamide, which is released by a cyanobacteria in the Lyngbya family. The chemical has never been studied in depth, and it is possible that dichlorobouillonamide has potential applications in pain treatment. This summer Aaron Danilack ’13 and Jeffrey Blackburn ’13 are working with Kinnel to carry out a laboratory synthesis of dichlorobouillonamide.  More ...
