Molecular MANIA 2011!

“Join graduate student volunteers from the Chemistry Department of UF at Halloween Molecular Mania 2011: Chemistry Day at the Oaks Mall. This free, annual event, features an array of interactive demonstrations designed to convey chemistry concepts to the youth of our community. These 15+ demonstrations range from making spider webs and slime, to super-cool chemistry featuring liquid nitrogen, and even imploding soda cans. Kids attending the event have a chance to win cool chemistry prizes in a free raffle. The event will take place this Saturday, October 29th, from 10am-3pm at Dillard’s Court in Oaks Mall. Please feel free to stop by with family and friends, or just to support the department. Graduate student Andrew Powers from the Veige group is organizing this year’s event, which is supported by the National Science Foundation, the ACS-Florida Section, the Chemistry Department, and the UF Center for Catalysis.”

Prof. Veige awarded ACS New Directions Grant

“Adam Veige, Associate Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Director of the Center for Catalysis, has received an American Chemical Society/Petroleum Research Fund New Directions Grant (ACS-ND). The two-year grant is in the amount of $100,000 and will support a new research project titled “A New Method to Link Metal Ions via Cycloaddition of Metal-Azides to Metal-Acetylides”. The New Directions Grant Program aims to stimulate a new direction of research for established faculty, and to support the careers of their student scientists and engineers.”
