Professor Uttam Pokharel recently published a paper in Inorganic Chemistry.  The paper deals with the synthesis of metal organic supramolecular hosts to capture small covalent molecular guests. The paper is here.

The chemistry faculty are celebrating the installation of a powerful new instrument that will allow researchers to study the chemical structure of molecules. The new 400 MHz NMR Spectrometer will be used to study physical, chemical, and biological properties of matter and has applications in many areas of science. The molecules under study are placed […]

Kaisa Young and collaborators recently published a paper in the Astrophysical Journal.  The paper, “Young Stellar Objects in the Gould Belt,” described protostars in this collection of several molecular clouds (the Gould Belt).

Kaisa Young and Chad Young, both physics professors at Nicholls, recently published a paper in the Astronomical Journal.  The paper described observations of the Perseus star-forming cloud and explored distribution, ages, and classifications of low-mass protostars.

Professors Chad Young, Glenn Lo, and Kaisa Young had a paper accepted to The Physics Teacher, a journal for high school and college physics teachers.  They and their Italian collaborator, Alberto Borsetta, presented an open-source solution to grading multiple choice exams.  More information at www.formscanner.org.

Drs. Chad and Kaisa Young presented a poster at the winter meeting of the American Association of Physics Teachers in San Diego, CA.  This national meeting brings together college and high school physics teachers from around the world.

Linpeng He, a Nicholls chemistry major, won the best overall chemistry poster at the recent meeting of the Louisiana Academy of Sciences.  Chao Dong also presented in this category with students from all over the state.  One judge noted, “Nicholls’ students shined” in their presentations. Great job Linpeng & Chao!

Nicholls students in Chem 405 attended PittConn in New Orleans last week (March 12th). Shown left to right are Chao Dong, Dr. Wayment, Alex Rivere and Linpeng He. Not pictured is Dr. Chauvin, who also accompanied the group. The students are shown overloaded with goodies and appear to be in a daze after observing the […]

Chemistry professor, Dr. Uttam Pokharel, recently published his work in organic chemistry in a prestigious international journal, Nature Communications.  Check out his paper here.  Also, see this article in LSU’s Daily Reveille.

 Ciera Duronslet, 2010 chemistry graduate of Nicholls, recently won the LSU TA Scholar award for outstanding work as a graduate teaching assistant in the Organic Chemistry Laboratory. Ms. Duronslet is working towards a PhD and is currently carrying out her dissertation research with George Stanley at LSU.
