ACS inorganic chemistry award goes to OU senior

Oakland University senior Katherine McAuliffe and Professor Evan Trivedi have been selected by the American Chemical Society to receive the 2017 ACS Division of Inorganic Chemistry Award for Undergraduate Research.

 

Successful year for Dr. Amitava Adhikary

Research Assistant Professor, Amitava Adhikary has recently been appointed as an Editorial Board member in two journals: Radiation Research and Radiation Physics & Chemistry.

In addition, he was elected as a Councilor (Chemistry) to the Radiation Research Society and has coauthored an article published in Science Advances.

Department of Chemistry

The Department of Chemistry offers a full curriculum in undergraduate and graduate education in the chemical sciences. 

Our faculty are committed to providing the highest quality teaching and research. Research participation by undergraduates is a distinctive part of the department's activity. Our students have the opportunity to carry out research projects at the forefront of chemical, biochemical, and environmental research. Undergraduates often publish their research in internationally recognized journals as well as present their work at national meetings of the Student Affiliates of the American Chemical Society

The department is housed in the Mathematics and Science Center (MSC) with advanced research laboratory facilities and renovated teaching laboratories. We are well-equipped with modern instrumentation for chemical research and teaching. Major instruments include high-performance computational chemistry facilities, advanced instrumentation such as Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), Electron Spin Resonance (ESR), Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP)- and Gas Chromatography (GC)-mass spectrometers; Infrared (IR), UV-visible and fluorescence spectrometers; dry boxes, a solvent purification system; and instruments for biochemistry such as flow cytometers, ultracentrifuges, and cell culture facilities. Recently, we installed a new Liquid Chromatography Time of Flight (ToF LC)-mass spectrometer.
