celebrates the 118th birthday of Chemistry at Creighton University!
On November 14, 1883, Fr.
Fr. A. A. Lambert, S.J. gave a lecture on combustion. From that
beginning, the university began teaching chemistry on a more or
less permanent basis.
This day is the anniversary of Professor Donald Baumanns birthday.
On this day, the Chemistry Department is pleased to announce the
2001 - 2002 Baumann Family Scholarships winners. The winners are
Jaclyn Greimann for her proposed work with Dr. Juliane Soukup on
the characterization of the structure of a catalytically active
self-phosphorylating DNA molecule and Kevin Spicka for his proposed
work with Dr. Martin Hulce on the conversion of 3-phenylethynyl-2-cycloheptenone
into a bicyclo analog containing a cyclopropene ring which will
be studied as a substrate for 1,6-addition reactions as found in
certain antibiotics. The Department wishes to express appreciation
to the six students who submitted applications for the scholarship.
The Department recognized the excellent quality of all six proposals
and regrets that only two could be selected as this years
recipients. Congratulations to all six applicants.
