Amy Keirstead presents research findings at the 41st Ontario-Quebec Physical Organic Mini-Symposium

November 18, 2013

akeirsteadAmy Keirstead, Ph.D., assistant professor in the Department of Chemistry and Physics, gave an oral presentation at the 41st Ontario-Quebec Mini-Symposium, held November 1-3, 2013, in Montreal, Quebec.

Her presentation, titled “1,1-Dimethyl-2,3,4,5-tetraphenylsilole as a Molecular Rotor Probe to Investigate the Microviscosity of Imidazolium Ionic Liquids,” included contributions from UNE student co-authors Regina Scalise (Chemistry‘13) and Peter Caradonna (Biochemistry and Medical Biology ’13) as well as Jerome Mullin, Ph.D., professor in the Department of Chemistry and Physics, and Henry Tracy, Ph.D., professor in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Southern Maine.

This work is part of Keirstead’s ongoing research program that investigates the use of ionic liquids for a variety of green chemistry and nanotechnology applications and was funded by the Maine Space Grant Consortium Education and Seed Research grant.
