The 2018 SCS Teaching Awards recipients are listed below.
- Douglas A. Mitchell was one of eleven faculty members who was honored with the Provost's Campus Distinguished Promotion Award for 2018.
- Prof. White has made pioneering contributions to the development of catalysts for selective allylic and aliphatic C—H oxidations that proceed without the requirement for substrate directing groups. Such reactions were previously considered not possible outside enzymatic catalysis.
- A recent award ceremony gave Illinois Chemistry Professor Dr.
- Zan Luthey-Schulten, Taras Pogorelov, Chad Rienstra, and Martin Burke represent two of 34 teams who have received allocations of computation time on the Blue Waters supercomputer.
- CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Makers of cars, planes, buses – anything that needs strong, lightweight and heat resistant parts – are poised to benefit from a new manufacturing process that requires only a quick touch from a small heat source to send a cascading hardening wave through a polymer.
- CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Biochemists at the University of Illinois have isolated a protein supercomplex from a bacterial membrane that, like a battery, generates a voltage across the bacterial membrane.
- Professor Prashant Jain and his colleagues report they can use light to drive two-electron chemical reactions, enhancing a method for converting CO2 into hydrocarbons.
- Professor Jeffrey Moore is the Royal Society of Chemistry Stephanie L. Kwolek Award winner for 2018.
- Recent work from the White Group on a new manganese catalyzed benzylic C—H amination for late-stage C—H functionalization was published in Nature Chemistry last week and was also highlighted in C&E News on Monday, May 8th.
- Scott E. Denmark, a professor of chemistry at the University of Illinois, has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences, one of the highest professional honors a scientist can receive.
- The first-of-its-kind Molecule Maker Lab, part of the Medical Maker Lab at Illinois, will empower physician-innovators at the Carle Illinois College of Medicine, and citizen scientists from around the world, to create molecules on-demand.
