Northern Michigan University chemistry students recently gave presentations at both the national American Chemistry Society (ACS) conference in San Diego, Calif., and at the American Chemistry Society Annual Upper Peninsula Research Symposium held at NMU.
Gino Pacifico, a senior studying biochemistry, and Tyler Watson, a senior studying medicinal plant chemistry, presented their topic, “Betulin concentration in Betula papyrifera bark: A comparison of living trees v.s. fallen trees in the presence of fomes fomentarius.”
Haylee Kuehl-Weisser, a senior studying medicinal plant chemistry, presented her topic, “The degradation of terpenes within a cannabis sativa extract based on different storage conditions.”
The ACS is an organization dedicated to advance the broader chemistry enterprise and its practitioners for the benefit of Earth and its people. The national ACS conference, which had more than 12,000 registrants this year, is an exposition that was created to allow chemistry professionals to meet and share their ideas and advance scientific and technical knowledge.
Two NMU students, Garret Meso, a graduate student studying mathematics, and Sam Smith, a senior studying chemistry, presented at the ACS U.P. Research Symposium on their topic, “Aromatic Donor-acceptor Interaction Based Organocatalyst Assembly for Asymmetric Catalytic Reactions.”
The research symposium, presented by the ACS Upper Peninsula Local Section, is an opportunity for graduate, undergraduate, high school and community college students to share their work with faculty, other students and the community and showcase research that is being conducted within the Upper Peninsula.The post NMU Students Present Chemistry Research at National and Local Conferences April 12, 2022 first appeared on Broadcast-everywhere.net.
