Awards and Accolades

Dr. Liang Dr. Ruibin Liang has won a Welch Grant for $300,000 for 3 years! The achievement is particularly impressive, given that the number of applications was considerably higher, and the number of grants awarded fewer, than in recent years.

Trophies The Gorden group has officially been notified of funding to be awarded $650,000 from the National Science Foundation for their project on "NSF2154848 - LnIII Complexes Displaying ErIII-centered Upconversion Emission in Solution and the Solid State with YbIII, NdIII or a Porphyrin-based ligand as Activators."+ More

Dr. Li Guigen Li's paper, “Asymmetric [4 + 2] cycloaddition synthesis of 4H-chromene derivatives facilitated by group-assisted-purification (GAP) chemistry”, was selected by the Royal Society of Chemistry as a 2021 HOT RSC Advances article. You can find his publication in the link below as well as the others selected for this honor: RSC Advances HOT Article Collection

Trophies Dr. Yehia Mechref, Dr. Dimitri Pappas, Dr. Bill Poirier, and Dr. Daniel Unruh, and were all selected as Special Honorees for induction into the TTU Chapter of the Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society. Phi Kappa Phi is the nation's oldest, most selective, and most prestigious all-discipline academic honor society

Trophies Dr. Elka Georgieva was admitted as a Member of the Royal Society of Chemistry. This is indeed a great honor and accomplishment, since the Member status is granted based on education, scientific merits, and letters of recommendation. It also requires a comprehensive review
