SLiThEr #49: Solid State Chemistry for Undergraduates

Submitted by Sarah Shaner / Southeast Missouri State University on Thu, 05/04/2023 - 18:57


This is the third in a series of SLiThErs about teaching advanced inorganic chemistry topics. In this SLiThEr, Joyce Pham (CSU San Bernardino) leads a discussion on “Solid State Chemistry for Undergraduates."

Beyond the Average Structure: Misfit and Superstructure of Chalcogenide Nanotubes (Tenne)

This LO is in honor of the 2023 ACS Award in the Chemistry of Materials to Professor Reshef Tenne. Prof. Tenne was recognized for his contributions toward the development of inorganic fullerene-like nanoparticles and inorganic nanotubes.

Growth of Colloidal Crystals (Aizenberg)

Submitted by Anne Bentley / Lewis & Clark College on Fri, 03/03/2023 - 18:21

Joanna Aizenberg of Harvard University was awarded the 2023 ACS Award in Colloid Chemistry for her outstanding contributions to fundamental and applied colloid chemistry in developing large-scale, highly ordered porous colloidal materials with unique photonic, catalytic, and sensing properties. This literature discussion will highlight her recent work to understand how colloidal crystals of polystyrene spheres grow when the solvent evaporates.

Phosphate Reduction by Mechanochemistry (Cummins)

Submitted by Kyle Grice / DePaul University on Fri, 01/13/2023 - 11:15

This Literature Discussion LO was created for the ACS Inorganic Chemistry Award Winners. Dr. Kit Cummins was the recipient of the 2023 Frederick Hawthorne Award in Main Group Inorganic Chemistry. This LO is based on a recent paper from the group of Dr. Cummins, entitled "Sustainable Production of Reduced Phosphorus Compounds: Mechanochemical Hydride Phosphorylation Using Condensed Phosphates as a Route to Phosphite", published in ACS Central Science20228, 332-339.

SLiThEr #42: Our Favorite Labs

Submitted by Chip Nataro / Lafayette College on Thu, 11/17/2022 - 08:29

Chip Nataro (Lafayette College) hosts a live discussion covering the favorite labs that people teach. The discussion somewhat evolved into a conversation on "so, you are teaching inorganic lab for the first time...what do you do?"
