Chemistry and Biochemistry News

Dr. Jody Johnson, Adjunct Professor of Chemistry, presented the Susan Slattery Memorial Lecture on Pollinators:  Here Today, Save for Tomorrow.  Dr. Johnson discussed the chemistry and biology involved in pollination and what students can do to help ensure the future of pollination here in Maryland.  Her presentation was very interesting, lively, and well-enjoyed by a large crowd of students, faculty and staff.  

Congratulations to Chemistry Senior, Corinna Carter, on being named the School of the Sciences' Slattery Scholar for 2016-2017!  Corinna was chosen for this honor based on her strong academic performance, and embodying Dr. Susan Slattery's characteristics of ethical behavior, collegiality and giving to the community.  Corinna was honored at the annual Slattery Memorial Lectureship.  

We're really looking forward to seeing our alumni on October 20th!  To register, for the event, please visit:  https://sualumni.ticketleap.com/school-of-the-sciences-alumni-affinity-event/t/facebook/

On Saturday, Dr. Michelle Ivey was down at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor collecting water samples to be analyzed using ion chromatography.  This semester, Dr. Ivey, along with her research student, chemistry major, Kelsie Kaier, will be developing methods for determining the concentration of ions in natural water samples.

Chemistry faculty members were happy to participate in and provide workshops for this year’s Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) event.  Dr. Tracey Mason had a lot of fun teaching the girls about the chemistry of film photography. The students produced a light reactive chemical that was used to produce a negative image of their photograph. Light was shown on the image to expose their pictures. The girls were able to take home the photographs that they had exposed!  Dr. Michelle Ivey and Dr. Sara Narayan helped the girls learn about the chemistry of glow sticks. The students mixed two solutions together to produce an illuminated substance of a pretty purple and blue light. The girls took home their glowing necklaces.  The faculty enjoyed sharing their love of chemistry with the middle school girls.
