ACU Undergraduate Researcher Receives Award at Chemistry Conference

Over 60 undergraduate students from universities in Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas presented posters and papers at the American Chemical Society Southwest Regional Meeting in Waco, TX on November 16-17, 2013. Faculty members from various university chemistry departments judged their presentations. ACU senior biochemistry major Audrey Fikes was awarded third place (and $50) for the oral presentation of her research results entitled “New diosmium(I) complexes with dicarboxylate ligands.” Sophomore ACU student Soo Hun Yoon and ACU faculty member Dr. Greg Powell were coauthors on this paper. Their work was partially funded by research and travel grants from PURSUIT and the ACU Office of Undergraduate Research.
