|This is an ongoing project.||
Contact DetailsProf Michael Rose
Preferred: Inorganic chemistry, CH431 or equivalent, (lecture & lab)
Preferred: Sophomore entering Junior Year
Juniors may be considered
[Note: Due to requirement of summer research, Seniors need not apply]
Project-oriented approach (i.e. not task-oriented)
Availability during Summer is required.
Attendance of weekly group meetings (1-2 hours)
Research units given commensurate with 12+ hours labwork
Preparative synthesis of (multistep) organic ligands
Metalation and synthesis of new inorganic complexes of new and existing ligands.
Routinely perform and interpret spectroscopic characterization (NMR, UV/vis, mass-spec, etc)
Opportunity for independent senior research upon outstanding performance in lab.
Now that you've used EUREKA to identify a project of interest to you, read about getting involved in research at The University of Texas at Austin.
The Office of Undergraduate Research recommends that you attend an info session before contacting faculty members or project contacts about research opportunities. We'll cover the steps to getting involved, tips for contacting faculty, funding possibilities, and options for course credit.
If you aren't able to attend an info session, contact the Office of Undergraduate Research to schedule an appointment with an advisor.
Once you have attended an Office of Undergraduate Research info session or spoken to an advisor, you can use the "Contact Details" for this project to get in touch with the project leader and express your interest in getting involved.
