Carmen Giunta, professor of Chemistry, presented two invited papers at the 256th national meeting of the American Chemical Society in Boston in the program of the division of the history of chemistry. The first, "Biological aspects of molecular chirality: Some 19th-century highlights" was part of a symposium on Pasteur's discovery of molecular chirality and its consequences. The second, "Twenty years of classic chemistry on the internet" was a description of his "Classic Chemistry" website, presented in both oral and poster form.
At least two recent graduates of the chemistry department also made presentations in the multidisciplinary poster session at the same national meeting. Matthew Dowgiallo '13, currently a graduate student at Northeastern University, presented a poster "Synthesis of a thiourea analogue of streptolidine lactam" in the program of the division of organic chemistry. James Gayvert '17, currently a graduate student at Boston University, presented a poster "eMap: A web application for mapping and visualizing electron/hole transfer channels in proteins" in the program of the division of computational chemistry.
