Researchers build, morph chemical patterns on stretchable surfaces
With just a slight stretch of the imagination – and some elastic material – Dr. Stephen A. Morin and colleagues have shown how to create microscopic chemical patterns whose flexibility could extend from the physical to the functional. Learn More
It was a mix of energy, gases, and non-Newtonian fluids as we celebrated our 15th annual Chemistry Day! Around 120 high school juniors, seniors, their parents and teachers attended the event on Saturday, October 3 in Hamilton Hall. This year's event was built around the theme "Chemistry Colors Our World: Exploring the Chemistry of Dyes, Pigments and Light." We look forward to welcoming more high school students next year!
Welcome to the web site for the Department of Chemistry at the University of Nebraska’s flagship campus here in Lincoln. We are a BIG Ten University on a steep growth trajectory! The Department has strengths at the disciplinary interfaces in Chemical Biology and Materials Chemistry. The former area builds around a long-standing tradition of research excellence in Organic Chemistry and Bioanalytical Chemistry and the latter benefits from an exceptional cadre of computational chemists ...
