ASU Chemistry Group Recognized
April 25, 2013
Earlier this month, ASU student ACS members Alexis Mobley, Brandon Allen, Marissa Saulnier and Christian Herrera attended the 245th ACS National Meeting and Exposition in New Orleans. In addition to making research presentations and poster presentations on chapter activities, they also accepted their Honorable Mention Student Chapter Award and Green Chemistry Student Chapter Award. They were accompanied by ASU faculty advisors Dr. Edith Osborne, assistant professor of chemistry, and Kevin Boudreaux, senior chemistry instructor.
The ASU group’s green chemistry initiatives are highlighted in The Nexus publication and also online on The Nexus Blog at https://communities.acs.org, the ACS undergraduate blog Reactions at http://acsundergrad.wordpress.com/, and the ACS Green Chemistry Institute Facebook page.
“Green Chemistry” is a movement that encourages the design of processes that reduce the usage of hazardous or environmentally unfriendly substances, encouraging the idea of sustainability in the chemical industry and in research.
ACS is the world’s largest scientific society. It is a non-profit organization chartered by the U.S. Congress, and is a global leader in providing access to chemistry-related research through its multiple databases, peer-reviewed journals and scientific conferences. Its main offices are in Washington, D.C., and Columbus, Ohio.
