Two Notre Dame College students are among the 80 experts who presented research as the College hosted the 2015 meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS) Cleveland Section.

At the conference Notre Dame students Hannah Conway ’15 and Jacob Kirsh ’16 co-presented a total of three sessions with Alan T. Riga, Ph.D., an adjunct instructor in chemistry at the College. The students were among scientists from throughout Ohio and Pennsylvania who introduced nearly 40 different studies in the areas of biochemistry, organometallic/polymers, organic, analytical and inorganic materials on campus.

Kirsh and Riga discussed the “Effect of Dielectric Properties on Drug Transport Through Shedded Snake Skins,” while Conway and the instructor presented “Updated Dielectric Thermal Analysis and Differential Scanning Calorimetry Studies Led to a Unified Polaron Theory of Ionic Conduction of Organic and Inorganic Crystalline Materials.”

Both students joined Riga on “Legal Case Study to Evaluate Product Liability Used Forensic Polymer Chemistry Measured by FTIR Spectroscopy and Differential Scanning Calorimetry.”

“We are proud that two of our students are presenting this year. Their work and that of their fellow students indicates the research enterprise and honors study here at Notre Dame College are growing at an amazing rate,” said John Moran, Ph.D., assistant professor of chemistry at the College and conference coordinator.
