Addison Iszler, an undergraduate researcher in our group working on the characterization of "knockout" analogues of PAMAM dendrimers who was recently recognized with the Randall research award, presented a poster at the Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities conference today on the UA campus. Good job Addie!
Our paper on the thermodynamic origin of the selectivity (or lack thereof) of a transition metal based receptor to a series of anions, stemming from work done by Michele Invernici, a visiting graduate student from Italy who spent six months in our group, has been accepted for publication in Chemistry - a European Journal! Here is a link: http://dx.doi.org/10.1002/chem.201800067
Dr. Bonizzoni was invited to present at the 2017 CASE (Catalysis and Sensing for our Environment) conference, organized in Shanghai, China by Prof. Yujun Yang (ECUST).
Xiaoli presented a poster today on the detection of sugars using boronated polymers at the 5th WiSE (Women in STEM Experience) Symposium organized by the University of Alabama. Her poster was selected to win the First Prize Poster Award! Congratulations Xiaoli!
All members of the group will present their research at the Southeastern Regional Meeting of the ACS in Columbia, SC. Dr. Bonizzoni presented an invited paper in a supramolecular symposium organized by Ken and Linda Shimizu of USC.
Dr. Bonizzoni was one of the 14 junior academics selected nationwide as emerging young investigators by the Division of Organic Chemistry of the American Chemical Society and invited to present at the Academic Young Investigator Symposium held at the Fall ACS National meeting in Philadelphia, PA.
Michael Ihde, a first-year graduate student in our group, was awarded the third prize at the 6th Annual Lester Andrews Graduate Research Symposium held at Mississippi State University, for his talk titled "A minimal sensor array for metal ion detection in water". Congratulations Michael!
Xiaoli's full paper on the surface modification of PAMAM dendrimers with boronic acid moieties for the detection of carbohydrates in neat water was accepted in the Journal of Materials Chemistry B. The manuscript, available at this link, was included in the journal's "Emerging Investigators 2016" themed issue.
