Thanksgiving 2022 News & Kudos

November 21, 2022


  • Hyojeong Kim has been awarded a NSF grant: “FMSG: BIO: Manufacturing of Molecular-Precision, Scalable 2D Material Memory Array for Future Electronics.” The grant is in collaboration with Arindam Das (E.E.) and researchers at Univ. of Pittsburgh. For this work, Dr. Kim will design a course/lab module based on the PI/co-PIs research outcome. Dr. Das will coordinate curriculum development and assessment activities for an experimental 400 level interdisciplinary course which will be offered to undergraduate students from ECE, Chemistry, and Physics at EWU!

Papers published

  • Eric Abbey, together with undergraduate students Eugene Korchemniy and Maggie Yates, has recently published two papers:

People in CHBP

  • Students Eugene Korchemniy’22 (outstanding chemistry TA), Maggie Yates, and Lindsay Butler, are currently doing research in Eric Abbey’s research laboratory. They focus on the synthesis of new organoborohydrides (RBH3). They examine the fundamental chemistry of these compounds, including their X-ray crystal structures (in collaboration with Kraig Wheeler at Whitworth), the influence of the pendant organic group on their reactivity as one and two-electron reducing agents by NMR, and their possible use as new tools for synthetic chemistry.

Coming outreach

  • Suds & Science: On December 3rd, at 7 PM at the Golden Handle Brewery (154 S. Madison, Spokane), Rebecca Brown from biology, Nigel Davies from Geology, and Andrés Aragoneses from CHBP will be talking about the science in the movie Avatar.
