Prof. Mechref is invited to review a Wellcome Early Career Award. Wellcome is a politically and financially independent global charitable foundation based in the UK.
Dong Zhang, PhD candidate in the Gamez lab, was invited to give his upcoming poster presentation also as a Lightning Talk in the Ambient Sampling & Ionization Interest Group workshop at the ASMS Conference on Mass Spectrometry and Allied Topics, June 5 – 9, Minneapolis, 2022
An article published by the Gamez lab was selected as a Top Finalist for the Paper of The Year Award from the Elsevier journal: Spectrochimica Acta B. You can see the publication in the publications section.
Angewandte Chemie did an 'Introducing' Profile on Prof. Kristin Hutchins. The profiles highlight authors who have published their first paper as corresponding author in Angewandte Chemie. Link here: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/anie.202205676
Dr. Guigen Li had the Supplementary Cover Art for his manuscript: 'From Center-to-Multilayer Chirality: Asymmetric Synthesis of Multilayer Targets with Electron-Rich Bridges' (10.1021/acs.joc.2c00234) is now published in The Journal of Organic Chemistry. You can see this art here: https://pubs.acs.org/toc/joceah/87/9
Prof. Hutchins delivered a plenary lecture at the Virtual Symposium on Solid-State Organic Chemistry on May 24, 2022 entitled, 'Using Mixed Environments and Dynamic Behaviors to Tune Solid-State Materials.
Janos Sarka had the talk 'Quantum Dynamical Study of the Hydrogen Exchange Reaction in the [FeH(H2)(PH3)4]+ Coordination Complex' at the XXth International Workshop on Quantum Atomic and Molecular Tunneling Systems (QAMTS 2022) in
Prof. Carol Korzeniewski gave the invited lecture “Confocal Raman Microscopy in the Study of Electrode-Electrolyte Interfaces” at Pittcon 2022 in the Symposium Shedding Light on Electrochemical Interfaces.
Both TTU and FAPESP have given funding to Dr. Poirier's proposed collaboration with
Dr. Brett Carlson, entitled “Riding Quantum Trajectories beyond Born-Oppenheimer:
Building better methods for reaction dynamics”. The total grant amount is $20,000.
Dr. Poirier was chosen as the Spring 2022 Arts and Science Students' Choice Top Faculty.
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.
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 This is in collaboration with groups at University of Nevada and Cal Poly - Humboldt.
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
