Quaterrylene is an aromatic hydrocarbon (essentially a small piece of graphene) with many applications in organic photovoltaics, organic thin-film transistors, and organic light emitting diodes due to its photophysical and semiconducting properties.
On May 2, 2014, Patricia Stone Wilkinson ‘88 of the University Instrumentation Center was awarded the UNH Chemistry Department’s Unsung Heroes award. The Chemistry Department gives this award for going above and beyond in service of the department.
An example of Pat’s outstanding support to the Chemistry Department is her collaboration with Chemistry Graduate Coordinator Howard Mayne on a new resume writing workshop. Pat has also worked with undergraduate students on their resumes as part of an undergraduate senior seminar class for Chemistry students.
As the title suggests, that was my hopeful outcome from hosting numerous pizza lunches for CEPS graduate students in various departments over the last month. My objective was to make graduate students aware of our office, the services and resources that we provide, and to stress that we’re not here just to serve the faculty and staff – we want to work with graduate students too!
The UNH Office for Research Partnerships and Commercialization (ORPC) recently traveled to Orlando, Florida for the 60th Annual Meeting of the Campus Safety Health and Environmental Management Association (CSHEMA) to promote our homegrown chemical inventory management system UNHCEMS®.
DURHAM, N.H. – Research from the University of New Hampshire’s chemistry department has resulted in an exclusive license agreement for an anti-fatigue hydrogel between the university and Wakup, Inc., UNH’s sixth startup company.
UNHCEMS® is UNH’s self-developed barcode-based software system to record and manage information about the quantity, location and properties of chemicals, biological agents, radioactive materials, and hazardous wastes throughout campus.
After a recent survey of UNHCEMS® software users at other institutions and the overwhelmingly positive feedback received, UNH hit the road to encourage other colleges and universities to implement our system.
