Research Experiences for Undergraduates in Chemistry: Research and Training in Nano-Scale Chemistry

Grants and Contracts Details


This Chemistry Division award supports a Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) site at the University of Kentucky, where a previous REU site was funded for 1997-1999. David Atwood is the site's Program Director. Eleven faculty will serve as REU student mentors. During the award period (2001-2003), each summer ten students will participate in a eleven-week program. The research area will be nano-scale chemistry, which will include all of the major divisions of chemistry. This research is multidisciplinary and is being conducted with a combination of collaborations involving the Engineering, Biological, and Geology departments. Available to the undergraduates will be the research programs of other faculty outside of the nano-scale projects. During the summer there will be a short-course on nanochemistry. This program will target women and Appalachian students from Kentucky and neighboring states. Academic year follow-up activities are planned.
