Matthew McBride wins Nov 2012 ONS Challenge Award
16 November 2012 | 3:00 pm

Matthew McBride, an undergraduate chemistry major at Drexel University working in the Bradley Laboratory, was awarded the November 2012 Open Notebook Science Challenge Award sponsored by the Royal Society of Chemistry.  ChemSpider founder Antony Williams presented Matt the award on behalf of the RSC. Matt is exploring the synthesis and solubility characteristics of dibenzalacetone derivatives.

MiniSymposium Bradley Lab 2011
5 October 2011 | 4:47 pm

I recently presented a 15 minute summary of the current research in my lab on September 29, 2011 at the Drexel University Department of Chemistry Faculty Mini-Symposium. The main project discussed was the Open Melting Point Collection done in collaboration with Andrew Lang and Antony Williams. Work by Evan Curtin is also shown, demonstrating the application of melting point and solubility in reaction design. I'll discuss this imine synthesis project in more detail later but Evan's experiments are listed in the notebook.

Some Interesting Perspectives on the Integration of Nanomaterials with Energy and Water Treatment Technologies

As part of various key concerns in a developing economy, clean energy and access to potable water are an integral part of most strategic visions for sustainable socio-economic development. Of particular interest is the search for greener energy solutions that includes R&D into hydrogen energy technologies, and devices that utilize solar energy. Whilst clean water concerns centre on indigenous, cost-effective, and relatively simple technologies that can be easily deployed in remote or off-grid areas. Within this framework, this presentation will look at the evolution of a select body of work that has focused on the integration of carbon Nanomaterials into systems for hydrogen storage, fuel cells, and photo-catalytic materials for water treatment.
