A team of scientists from Florida State University and University of South Carolina have found a way to mimic photosynthesis — converting light energy into chemical fuel in the lab. Their study is published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society.
The FSU Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry welcomes its latest cohort of Ph.D. graduates during a hooding ceremony in the Kroto auditorium.
FSU chemistry doctoral student receives Department of Energy research award to build safer, better batteries
A Florida State University doctoral student working to replace these materials with safer alternatives will get the chance to further this work with the support of an Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) Award from the Department of Energy.
Biochemistry alumna earns NSF postdoctoral fellowship to alleviate vitamin A deficiencies through orange corn
Kerestin Goodman (2021 Ph.D. from FSU) receives a $78,000 NSF Fellowship to work alongside researchers at Purdue University examining how to enhance nutritional benefits of corn by breeding corn high in nutritional compounds called carotenoids.
The Ma research group has developed a new way to create blue light from a class of materials that shows enormous potential for optoelectronic devices, including solar cells, light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and lasers.
Igor Alabugin, a Distinguished Research Professor with the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, was selected by the Florida chapter of the ACS to receive the 2022 Florida Award in recognition of his contributions to the chemistry field.
A team of Florida State University researchers has uncovered a way to use low-energy light to manipulate photopolymers or plastic films — a finding that has implications for a wide range of technologies that use light as an energy source to create shape-shifting structures.
Brianna Coia (Kennemur Group) has won the ACS POLY Graduate Student Travel Awards to present her work at the 2022 ACS Meeting in Chicago
The Steinbock research group investigated the formation and spread of brown spots on bananas, a striking case of biological pattern formation. In research published in Physical Biology, the team described how the spots appear during a two-day window, rapidly expand, but then mysteriously stall, leaving a sharp distinction between spots of brown and the still-yellow peel.
Undergraduate student, Nicholas Volya, is awarded the 2022 Kolthoff Award from the ACS Division of Analytical Chemistry
The I.M. Kolthoff Award is given annually to deserving undergraduates who have done undergraduate research in the field of analytical chemistry, broadly defined, in celebration of the life and accomplishments of the late Professor Izaak Maurits Kolthoff, viewed by many as the father of modern analytical chemistry.
