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.
Jason Kuszynski and Catherine Fabiano, students in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, received their awards from the Department of Defense Science, Mathematics, and Research for Transformation (SMART) Scholarship Program. The awards provide full tuition for up to five years, plus a stipend, mentorship, summer internships and full-time employment with the Department of Defense after graduation.
The Center for Global Engagement highlights Dr. Bello’s graduate career and current work at the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
Working in computational biophysics, the primary focus of Dr. Yang’s research is to develop special computational techniques that allow him to simulate functional proteins of biological molecules.
Professor Igor Alabugin receives the Markovnikov Medal from Moscow State University and an Honorable Professorship from St. Petersburg State University for his career contributions to the field of organic chemistry.
