Add It Up: A Q&A with Chemistry's Mark Meier

The new College of Arts & Sciences Research Computing cluster shares the basic design elements of a modern supercomputer, though at a smaller scale and lower cost. Multiple systems are linked together within a high bandwidth, low latency framework, allowing researchers to run demanding applications across hundreds of processors simultaneously.

Full STEAM Ahead

The STEAM Academy opened in Lexington last fall, offering its students a blended learning instructional program, focusing on mastery learning, personalized instruction and opportunities to engage in resources at UK.

UK Students Have Banner Year Racking Up National Honors

In the 2013-14 school year alone, UK students earned 11 more national awards than the previous year, including a prized Truman Scholarship and two Goldwaters.

Chemistry Department Seminar: Mechanism-Based Design of Precursors for the Deposition of Inorganic Films and Nanoparticles.

----------
Dr. Lisa McElwee-White of the University of Florida will be presenting a seminar titled Mechanism-Based Design of Precursors for the Deposition of Inorganic Films and Nanoparticles.

Abstract: Nanostructures can be deposited from organometallic and inorganic precursors by a variety of techniques including chemical vapor deposition (CVD), surface plasmon mediated chemical solution deposition (SPMCSD) and electron beam induced deposition (EBID).  A mechanism-based approach to designing precursors for these deposition methods requires consideration of the properties of the precursor compound and its probable decomposition pathways under the specific reaction conditions.  Examples will be chosen from CVD of metal nitride films, CVD of metal oxide nanorods, SPMCSD of gold nanoparticles on nanostructured Ag substrates and EBID of high metal content deposits.

Dawson Lecture - Cancelled

----------
This event has been cancelled.

Dr. Geoffrey Coates of Cornell University will be presenting this year's Dawson Lecture, titled New Polymers from Old Monomers: Advances Enabled through Catalyst Design and Discovery.

Abstract: Although the chemical, physical, and mechanical properties of a polymer are the most vital factors in determining utility, another important constraint that must be considered is the cost of the material. The best way to create inexpensive new polymers is to start with large-scale commodity monomers, rather than rely on the development of new-to-the-world monomers. The focus of our work is the development of new synthetic methods for polymer synthesis, where known organic feedstocks are combined in alternative ways to make new macromolecular materials. We accomplish this through the development of metal-based catalysts that exhibit unique reactivity. In this presentation, the discovery, development and application of new catalysts for polymerization will be presented. The development of new methods for the synthesis of sustainable polymers will also be discussed. 

Refreshments will be served before the event in CP-114A/B.

Faculty Host: Dr. Susan Odom
