Corrine Elliott receives Undergraduate Award in Organic Chemistry from the American Chemical Society

Corrine Elliott was recognized as the American Chemical Society's Division of Organic Chemistry as the most outstanding, senior organic chemistry student at the University of Kentucky. Selection is based on aptitude for organic chemistry as evidenced by formal course work as well as research accomplishments during the course of their undergraduate studies, and lastly by a desire to pursue a career in chemistry.

Odom, Risko, and Parkin Publish on High Energy Flow Battery Materials in Energy and Environmental Science

Susan Odom and Chad Risko published a report on new catholyte materials for non-aqueous redox flow batteries in Energy and Environmental Sciences.  This study, performed in collaboration with Prof. Fikile Brushett at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, showcases the long lifetimes of materials created in Odom's laboratory as electron donors.

Anthony and Risko publish on Crystal Packing in Chemistry of Materials

Predicting the packing of molecules in the solid state is a major goal of researchers around the world. In their latest paper in Chemistry of Materials, Professors Chad Risko and John Anthony derive understanding as to how subtle changes in the chemical structure of trialkylsilylethynyl pentacenes, an important class of organic semiconductor materials, can impact the solid-state molecular packing arrangements that in turn determine the semiconducting characteristics.

Corrine Elliott recognized for research accomplishments with a 2016 Goldwater Scholarship

Corrine Elliott was awarded a 2016 Goldwater Scholarship.  The Barry Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Program was established by Congress in 1986 to honor Senator Barry Goldwater, who served his country for 56 years as a soldier and statesman, including 30 years of service in the U.S. Senate.

Corrine Elliott receives a Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship from the Organic Division of the American Chemical Society

Corrine "Nina" Elliott, an undergraduate student majoring in chemistry and mathematics at UK, is the receipient of a Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) from the American Chemical Soceity's Division of Organic Chemistry.  This $5,000 fellowship will allow Corrine to continue research in the Chemistry Department at the University of Kentucky for the Summer of 2016.

Professors Anthony and Risko publish in the ACS journal Chemistry of Materials.

The article titled "Dynamics, Miscibility, and Morphology in Polymer:Molecule Blends: The Impact of Chemical Functionality". The study presents a computational chemistry investigation of polymer:molecule blends of acceptors prepared in the Anthony lab with poly(3-hexylthiophene) and the effects slight modifications in chemical structure on blend morphology. Citation: Chem. Mater. 201527, 7643-7651. DOI: 10.1021/acs.chemmater5b02983
