A campus record eight UNL faculty members have been named fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the world's largest general scientific society. The new AAAS fellows are David Berkowitz, Scott Gardner, Ronnie Green, Andrzej Rajca, Mark Riley, Daniel Schachtman, Janos Zempleni and Tian Zhang.
UNL chemist David Hage and his advisee, Xiwei "Emmi" Zheng, have received recognition for advancing techniques that help examine protein-drug interactions in the body.
A special Halloween Sci Pop Talk on "The Nightmares of Spiders" will take place at 7 p.m. Oct. 28 in the Peterson Room (Room 221) at Love Library, 13th and R streets.
More than 120 Nebraska high school juniors, seniors, their parents and teachers will gather at UNL on Oct. 3 for the 15th annual Chemistry Day.
It’s a counterintuitive finding that has puzzled researchers: Why do bigger atoms sometimes fare better at passing through the smallest of channels? UNL researchers have co-authored a new study that helps reveal the chemistry behind the mystery, offering answers that may inform efforts to purify water and transport pharmaceutical drugs.
With just a slight stretch of the imagination – and some elastic material – UNL researchers led by chemist Stephen Morin have shown how to create microscopic chemical patterns whose flexibility could extend from the physical to the functional.
Members of the UNL community featured in award announcements this week include Frans von der Dunk, Don Adams, Galen Erickson, Samodha Fernando, Merlyn Nielsen, Karen Kunc, Jung Yul Lim and Xiwei Zheng.
A UNL team led by chemist David Berkowitz recently published their findings in the journal Science Advances.
In a series of studies, UNL chemists (left to right) Jun Dai, Xiao Cheng Zeng, Alexander Sinitskii and Alexey Lipatov have demonstrated that a compound called titanium trisulfide could surge toward the fore of two-dimensional materials that are gaining popularity among designers of microelectronics.
Graphene has garnered much attention for its potential to improve electronics, solar cells and other devices. UNL chemist Alexander Sinitskii is using his breakthrough graphene production technique to put the promising nanomaterial to the test.
