NSF-REU Program

This program focuses on chemistry research in all of the "traditional" areas of chemistry (analytical, inorganic, organic, physical), and also provides opportunities in many non-traditional areas, including materials chemistry. A unique aspect of our REU program is that many of the projects will involve collaboration between experimental and computational chemists, drawing on UNT's world-class infrastructure and expertise in computational chemistry. Possible research areas include:

Analytical Chemistry * Inorganic Chemistry * Organic Chemistry * Physical Chemistry *Computational Chemistry * Materials Chemistry * Ligand Design * Kinetics * Catalysis * Synthetic Organometallic Chemistry * Non-electrolytic Solutions * Biochemistry * Layered Inorganic Materials * Metal Electrodeposition * Surface Chemistry * Organic Electrochemistry * Diamond-like Carbon Films * Organic Synthesis * Metal/Ceramic Nanocomposites * Optical Sensors * Gas-Phase Chemistry * Conducting Polymers * Fluorescence/Phosphorescence * Spectroscopy * Atmospheric Chemistry * Environmental Chemistry

In addition to a meaningful research experience, this program includes a career program led by former executives of major international chemical companies, tours of local companies to see how chemistry plays a role, "hands-on" learning experiences training in scientific communication (written and verbal), leadership in chemistry seminars by top leaders of the 170,000+ member American Chemical Society, and an ethics in science component.

We plan to provide a strong research experience combined with important career training.

Early application is encouraged, as we anticipate heavy interest in this unique program.
