Assistant Professor of Chemistry, Dr. Chris Bradley, has recently received two grant awards for the 2014-2015 year. Two pieces of equipment have been obtained through these awards, a UV-visible Spectrometer and a Potentiostat, that will aid in enhancing the educational and research experiences in green and renewable energy science.

The funding for the UV-visible Spectrometer is provided by The John J. Leidy Foundation. This instrument is an important piece of equipment for use in laboratory courses and undergraduate research in the Division of Chemistry. The spectrometer could impact the studies of more than 500 students annually over the next 15+ years. The funding for the Potentiostat is provided by the Spectroscopy Society of Pittsburgh. This instrument, too, is an important piece of equipment in the Divison of Chemistry. The Potentiostat could impact the study of more than 500 students annually over the next 15+ years.

Congratulations to Dr. Bradley and the Chemistry Department for receiving these prestigious awards!
