Professor Veige awarded a 2010 Sloan Research Fellowship

“Adam Veige, assistant professor of chemistry in the College of Liberal Arts and Science, has been awarded a 2010 Sloan Research Fellowship. Professor Veige is one of only 23 chemists to receive this award in 2010. Sloan Fellows receive $50,000 for a two-year period to support their research goals. Dr. Veige credits this award to his talented group of student researchers who are studying Inorganic/Organometallic chemistry. Together they are finding new ways to catalytically activate, break and form new chemical bonds that are relevant to asymmetric synthesis, energy conversion, and dinitrogen fixation. In an upcoming manuscript the Veige research group will report an unprecedented sequence of reactions involving C-N bond rupture followed by methyl group dehydrogenation.”
