Instructor: Andrew Carr
Description: This course is intended for freshmen and sophomore students interested in science with no previous college-level research experience. Students will perform original re-search and experience the excitement of learning things no one knew before. Stu-dents will work in small groups to advance a research project of interest to the larger scientific community. Students will use various modern instrumental techniques (NMR and IR) and be exposed to all parts of the scientific process including formulating questions, searching for and reading primary literature, performing experiments, evaluating results, and presenting their work in oral and written form. The projects for this course will involve synthesis and characterization of various organogel materials for possible use in drug delivery applications and fuel stabilization.
