Jon Michel '13 and Greg Rahn with the "new" mass spectrometer
Chemistry Department Welcomes Donated Mass Spectrometer

A previously owned ion trap mass spectrometer (LC/MS) was recently donated to the Chemistry Department by SAIC – Frederick, Inc. Dr. Jack Simpson, a senior scientist at SAIC, made the donation possible. A similar, new LC/MS would cost about $175,000.  More ...

Robin Kinnel
Kinnel Delivers Talk in Honolulu

Robin Kinnel, the Silas D. Childs Professor of Chemistry Emeritus, presented a paper at the 2010 International Chemical Congress of the Pacific Basin Societies (PacifiChem) on Dec. 18, in Honolulu. In his presentation, he discussed work carried out while on leave at Scripps Institute of Oceanography and at Hamilton.  More ...

Baxter ’11 and McGavin ’12 Study at Center for NMR Spectroscopy

As part of their summer research with Associate Professor of Chemistry Myriam Cotten, Matt Baxter ’11 and Jason McGavin ’12 spent 10 days working at the Center for Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Spectroscopy and Imaging of Proteins at the University of California San Diego. The Center is managed by Professor Stanley Opella, who is pioneering the use of bicelles (“bilayered micelles”) to study membrane proteins under physiologically relevant conditions.  More ...

Cotten and Students Work at National High Magnetic Field Lab

Associate Professor of Chemistry Myriam Cotten and her team of Hamilton students spent 10 days this summer at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Tallahassee, Fla., to study piscidin, antimicrobial peptides from fish. The team, comprised of Caitlin Burzynski ’12, Nina Kraus '13, Cotten, and Alex Dao ’12, used several state-of-the-art Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) instruments to obtain atomic-level information on samples of piscidin bound to lipid bilayers that mimic bacterial membranes.  More ...

Graepel '11, Adams '11 and Snyder
Snyder, Adams '11 and Graepel '11 Work on GBM Vaccine
Under the guidance of Assistant Professor of Chemistry Nicole Snyder, Taylor Adams ’11 and Kevin Graepel ’11 spent the summer working on the development of a carbohydrate-based vaccine for glioblastoma multiforme, the most aggressive type of primary brain tumor. More ...
Camille Jones
Jones Awarded NSF Grant for Chemistry Course Development

Assistant Professor of Chemistry Camille Jones has been awarded a two-year, $198,000 National Science Foundation grant for the development and evaluation of a course in solid state chemistry for seniors majoring in chemistry and chemical physics. The course will be the first of its kind among Hamilton’s peer institutions.  More ...

Nicole Snyder
Snyder and Graepel ’11 Co-author Book Chapter
Assistant Professor of Chemistry Nicole Snyder and Kevin W. Graepel ’11 published a chapter in Named Reactions for Carbocyclic Ring Formations edited by Jie Jack Li of Bristol Myers Squibb and E. J. Corey of Harvard University (Nobel Prize 1990). The chapter, “Ring Closing Metathesis,” focuses on the use of the Grubbs and Schrock catalysts (Nobel Prize 2005) to prepare carbocycles (ring structures containing only carbon atoms). More ...
Meghan Carter '12
Meghan Carter ’12 Examines Fluorescence
To the naked eye, the simple glass beads all over the lab of Meghan Carter ’12 are not very exciting. However, under UV light, the beads glow different colors depending on their composition. Working under Associate Dean of Students for Academics and Professor of Chemistry Karen Brewer, Carter is trying to increase the fluorescence of these beads. More ...
Dan Brimberry '13
Tracking Toxic Traces
Over the past few years, people have become aware of a health threat in an unexpected place: traces of bisphenol-A (or BPA) that leach from reusable plastic water bottles. Because of his interest in endocrinology and toxicology, Dan Brimberry ’13 has decided to further pursue this subject with funding from an Emerson grant and guidance from Timothy Elgren, professor of chemistry. More ...
Participants at the Ninth Annual MERCURY Conference
MERCURY Attracts Researchers Across the U.S.
The Ninth Annual National MERCURY Conference on Computational Chemistry, devoted solely to undergraduates who are working on research projects in computational chemistry, was held at Hamilton from Aug. 1 through Aug. 3. The program offered an opportunity for undergraduates to learn about the breadth of research in computational chemistry, particularly in interdisciplinary topics and to discuss their work with other undergraduate computational chemists as well as some leaders in the field. More ...
