Research Accomplishments/Published Chemistry Research

While it is a significant professional accomplishment for chemistry and biochemistry majors to engage in mentored research throughout the school year and during extensive summer research experiences, it is a major accomplishment to produce externally peer-reviewed scholarship (i.e. journal articles, patents, or book chapters). Our accomplished professors and students make significant contributions that advance the body of knowledge in the chemistry and biochemistry fields. Check out the following list of research completed at ONU that has been recently published. (ONU faculty members are in bold, and ONU student co-authors are indicated with a *.)
