UNL chemist Xiao Cheng Zeng (pictured) has co-authored a study featured on the February cover of ACS Catalysis, a high-impact academic journal published by the American Chemical Society. The study evaluated how well certain metallic atoms help toxic carbon monoxide molecules acquire the extra electron that transforms them into the less noxious carbon dioxide
Alfano named American Academy of Microbiology Fellow; Braithwaite, Griep earn awards; Madsen finalist for set design honor
If it can't stand the heat, get out the graphene. UNL chemists and electrical engineers have published a new study showing that coats of graphene — a honeycombed sheet of carbon only one atom thick — can protect delicate nanostructures against temperatures that would otherwise melt them.
UNL’s Department of Chemistry will continue a spring colloquia, “UNL Chemistry — Pushing the Science to the Disciplinary Boundaries and Beyond,” at 3:30 p.m. Jan. 30 in Hamilton Hall, Room 112.
UNL faculty Jim Lewis and David Berkowitz will contribute their respective expertise to advancing U.S. efforts in education and chemistry by assuming leadership positions with the National Science Foundation.
Publishing results in an academic journal or presenting them at a national conference represents a finish line for many researchers. For those looking to transfer their work from public institution to private industry, however, this finish line becomes a starting point with assistance from a UNL-based trio.
A retirement reception for Darrel Kinnan is 2 to 4 p.m., Dec. 12 in Hamilton Hall, Room 227. Kinnan is retiring from the chemistry department after 38 years of service. The reception is free and open to the public.
Joseph Francisco, the new dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, has big plans to raise the college’s profile within the university community as well as on the national and international scene.
With support from the National Institutes of Health, UNL's David Hage is developing approaches to analyze how the bonding of proteins and glucose alters the effectiveness of diabetes medications taken by millions who contend with diabetes on a daily basis.
The contents of a 98-year-old UNL chemistry time capsule were revealed this month -- including a manuscript of a biography of groundbreaking university chemist Rachel Lloyd.
