For his contributions to the field of anion spectroscopy, including the application of photoelectron imaging for probing molecular electronic structures and their transformations in chemical reactions, and the development of practical models for the analysis of photoelectron angular distributions as signatures of molecular orbitals, Andrei Sanov has been elected to Fellowship in the American Physical Society. Congratulations, Andrei.
Professor Jon T. Njardarson along with graduate students Isaac Chogii, Pradipta Das and Kevin A. Scott as well as undergraduate student Mark N. Crawford report in the Journal of the American Chemical Society a new asymmetric anion-accelerated amino-Cope reaction (J. Am. Chem. Soc. 2017, 139, 13141).
Jessica Forelli has been awarded the American Chemical Society Hach Land Grant Scholarship for Chemistry Teachers for Fall 2017. Established by the Hach Scientific Foundation in 1982 to encourage students to pursue chemistry at the undergraduate level, the Foundation now has narrowed its focus in response to the high need of chemistry educators at the secondary level.
