Five group members presented their research at the 242nd American Chemical Society (ACS) National Meeting on Aug. 28-Sept.1, held at Denver, Colorado. Around the theme, “Chemistry of Air, Space & Water,” over 10,000 chemists from all over the world joined this national meeting to share their knowledge, network and learn about cutting-edge research. One poster was presented at the Colloid and Surface Science Division, “Effect of cationic surfactant template and its interaction with specific anion” by Paul Sanstead ’11 and Nick Florio ’11. Another poster was presented at the Division of Chemical Education, entitled, “Modulation of contact angle of droplet interface bilayers: Effect of ionic nature and strength” by Darius Fartash ’13, Zuzanna Michalak ’13, and Nousin Haque ’13. The research is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). This is the second year of a three-year, $157,705 NSF grant. The students are also grateful to the Patrick J. Martin Foundation, Eli Lilly/WCC, and AMEX grant for enabling them to attend this conference.
