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).
Steven Le nominated Fabiola Vazquez because she is so very industrious in all aspects of her life. In addition to attending many, many lectures and laboratory sessions and completing assignments for all of them, she invests her time in study groups, collaborating with her classmates to improve upon her mastery of her subject as well as sharing her own knowledge.
