Dr. Greg Grant, Irvine W. Grote professor of chemistry, Dr. Jisook Kim, assistant professor of chemistry, and Dr. Kyle Knight, professor of chemistry, have secured $151,938 from the National Science Foundation to purchase a Benchtop Single Crystal X-Ray Diffractometer.
The equipment will be used for faculty and student research in the Department of Chemistry. Diverse organizations throughout the Chattanooga region have also expressed interest in utilizing this important technology.
Dr. Grant, Dr. Kim, and Dr. Knight’s dedication in seeking funding will allow UTC to continue providing undergraduate chemistry majors with the extensive research experience needed to prepare them for future careers and educational endeavors, as well as further the University’s goal to form vital partnerships with the surrounding community.
The award was funded with federal stimulus money under the American Recovery and & Reinvestment Act of 2009.
