Associate Professor of Chemistry Dwight Stoll will receive the 2017 EAS Young Investigator Award. This award is sponsored by the Eastern Analytical Symposium, one of the premier conferences in analytical chemistry in the U.S., and recognizes ‘…those who have made significant practical contributions to the field of analytical chemistry that have helped advance the state [more…]
This year (2016) at the Eastern Analytical Symposium in Somerset, NJ we will offer a short course on Two-Dimensional Liquid Chromatography for Pharmaceutical Analysis. The full list of short courses can be found here, and a description of our specific course can be found here.
Two weeks ago Steve Groskreutz, Gustavus alum from 2012 and Stoll Laboratory alum, came back to Gustavus to install equipment that we will use as part of a collaboration with his Ph.D. group (Prof. Stephen Weber) at the University of Pittsburgh. During his three-day visit, JJ Akin caught up with him and asked Steve to [more…]
Brady Corporation (Glendale, WI) is seeking chemists interested internship and/or job opportunities with their company. You can find postings for opportunities here:
Gustavus students and alums can also view these opportunities on Handshake.
This study presents a novel handheld device used for “in situ” monitoring of nitroaromatic explosives (e.g. TNT) using desorption atmospheric pressure chemical ionization (DAPCI) coupled to a tandem mass spectrometer. The need for portable and relatively fast methods of detection for explosive compounds is important for security checkpoints where there is not time for samples [more…]
Here is a recent, interesting article about the use of two-dimensional gas chromatography to decaying flesh, which has a variety of applications.
This year Pittcon will offer two short courses on 2D-LC.
The first course (Introduction to two-dimensional liquid chromatography) will be general in scope, taught by Dwight Stoll and Peter Carr, for the full day of Saturday, March 5th.
The second course (Two-dimensional liquid chromatography for pharmaceutical analysis) will be focused on small and large molecule [more…]
Gustavus alumnus Ian Gibbs-Hall (’13) has finished a Master of Science degree in chemistry at Northwestern University, and will begin work with Activated Research Company in Eden Prairie, MN later this month. During his time at Gustavus, Ian worked in the Stoll research laboratory for parts of all four years. He was selected twice for [more…]
The chirality of a molecule can vastly alter the reactions and chemical behaviors of that molecule, especially in stereospecific environments. There have been a variety of examples demonstrating that a change in chirality can make seemingly identical molecules either medically helpful or equally very detrimental to human health. With this distinction, it becomes necessary to [more…]
Nuclear reactions are a powerful method by which to produce energy. It is common knowledge, however, that the use of nuclear reactions to create energy also results in potentially hazardous nuclear waste. Thus, consideration must be given not only to the safety of nuclear waste repositories, but also to the possibility of detrimental compounds escaping [more…]
