Chemistry faculty and students from the Department of Physical Sciences presented research April 2-6 at the 253rd American Chemical Society National Meeting and Exposition in San Francisco, Calif.
Faculty and students (underlined) made their research presentations via posters. Topics and presenters included the following:
- Aurora Burkus-Matesevac and Zuzana Zajickova, PhD — “Preparation of organo-silica monolithic columns for applications in capillary liquid chromatography using thiolene click reaction”
- Diana Cordero and Tamara Hamilton, PhD — “Mechanochemical synthesis of porphine and bis-pocket porphyrin”
- Qiwen Su and Tamara Hamilton, PhD — “Tetra-meso-substituted porphyrins via mechanochemistry; reaction homology and applications of a porous catalyst”
- Nirva Maxi and Tamara Hamilton, PhD — “Tetra-substituted porphyrin with exo-dentate binding groups: Toward catalytic metalloporphyrin assemblies”
- Shatora Everett-Hannah and Tamara Hamilton PhD — “Mechanochemical Oxidation Leading to Porphyrins”
- Miguel Gao and Tony Wallner, PhD — “Synthesis,NMR characterizationand kineticstudies ofcreatine pyroglutamate”
- Eva Paulus; Diana Cordero; Nirva Maxi; Ramon Gutierrez; Tamara Hamilton, PhD; and George H. Fisher, PhD — Barry University Chemistry Club: “Sharing our Passion for Chemistry”
In addition to presenting research, the Chemistry Club was named Outstanding Chapter, an honor it has received for more than 15 consecutive years.
