Undergraduates present posters at national conference of chemists

April 25, 2017

Undergraduate students at Detroit Mercy can take advantage of small class sizes, working closely with faculty on research projects and presenting their research findings at national conferences.

That’s exactly what many of the Chemistry and Biochemistry undergraduates do.

They take advantage of the faculty’s active involvement in the American Chemical Society (ACS).

The ACS meetings provide an opportunity to network, learn and develop communication skills by presenting research to their peers and industry experts.

Six undergraduate students presented their research at the National Meeting of the American Chemical Society in San Francisco earlier this month.

Their research was presented in the Environmental Division session.

Here are their presentations:

  1. Justin Pothoof, Grace Nguyen, Sara Tinawi, and Mark A. Benvenuto.  Synthesis of a series of podand ligands all incorporating long-chain aliphatic moieties, presented at the 253rd National Meeting of the American Chemical Society, ENVR 741, San Francisco, CA, 5 April 2017.

  2. Sara Thomas, Grace Nguyen, Diamond Stokes, Tiffany Tieu Ngo, Mark A. Benvenuto, and Elizabeth S. Roberts-Kirchhoff. Analysis of mineral cosmetics with a hand-held X-ray fluorescence analyzer, presented at the 253rd National Meeting of the American Chemical Society, ENVR 742, San Francisco, CA, 5 April 2017.
