White, Kimberly N.; Vincent-Layton, Kimberly; Villarreal, Brandilynn – Journal of Chemical Education, 2021
The adoption of equitable and inclusive teaching strategies in the undergraduate chemistry classroom is essential if equity gaps are to be minimized. Reducing these gaps will foster a diverse talent pool of future chemists to propel creativity and innovation. To cultivate an equitable and inclusive environment, instructors must engage in ongoing…

González-Flores, Diego; Fernández, Gabriela; Urcuyo, Roberto – Journal of Chemical Education, 2021
Electrochemical and spectroelectrochemical techniques are very important for characterizing energy materials. In the search for new sources of renewable energy, water splitting for hydrogen production and CO[subscript 2] reduction is attracting significant attention. These applications require efficient and durable catalysts and a detailed…

Stribling, Daniel; Brewer, Christopher R.; Goldsby, Kenneth A. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2021
The mercury beating heart is a dramatic demonstration of redox chemistry that allows for the direct conversion of chemical energy to mechanical energy without involving a machine to accomplish the transfer. Unfortunately, instructors often avoid this demonstration due to difficulties initiating the oscillating redox reaction that drives the…

Barceló-Oliver, Miquel; Cabello, Carlos P.; Torrens-Serra, Joan; Miró, Manuel; Cabot, Catalina; Bosch, Rafael; Delgado, Montserrat R. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2021
Although residues and resource shortages are major problems of modern living, these topics are not usually properly covered in university curricula. To tackle this situation, we have guided undergraduate students through the design of a group of active learning activities, to demonstrate the science behind separation and recycling: trash…

Conde-Cid, M.; Fernández-Calviño, D.; Arias-Estévez, M. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2021
A laboratory exercise was developed for the study of the effect of three cations (Al, Ca, and Na) on the flocculation and dispersion of soil particles. The exercise was designed for Soil Science undergraduate students in the second-course in the Agricultural Engineering and Environmental Sciences department at the University of Vigo. The students'…

Kamber, David N. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2021
In-person interactions between faculty and students personalize the learning experience and are the hallmark of primarily undergraduate institutions. These invaluable student--faculty interactions were disrupted during the 2019 SARS-CoV-2 global pandemic and led to a rapid, unprecedented shift to distance-learning. Within the space of virtual…

Jacobs, Alexander D. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2021
Take-home examinations were utilized during the COVID-19 pandemic for upper-level analytical chemistry lecture courses. The questions were often scenarios which required the students to determine the best type of instrument to use and how to go about the experiment. Answers submitted were well thought out and detailed, showing that the students…

Pernaa, Johannes; Law, Gareth T. W.; Ranjan, Sanjeev – Journal of Chemical Education, 2021
Radiochemistry faces a well-documented training and recruitment crisis. Older radiochemists are retiring, and fewer young people are studying radiochemistry. In turn, this is leading to a shortage in newly qualified radiochemists, as well as a loss of historical knowledge (as know-how is often not passed-on). Here, we analyzed the relevance of the…

Atieh, Emily L.; York, Darrin M.; Muñiz, Marc N. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2021
As the conversation in higher education shifts from diversity to inclusion, the attrition rates of students in the STEM fields continue to be a point of discussion. Combined with the demand for expansion in the STEM workforce, various retention reforms have been proposed, implemented, and in some cases integrated into policy following evidence of…

Giri, Soumen; Dutta, Paulami – Journal of Chemical Education, 2021
Online teaching and learning as an electronically supported approach relies mainly on the Internet as the medium for knowledge transmission. The utmost efforts are being made so that learning will be possible, even during the time of the COVID-19 pandemic, while also maintaining academic integrity. In this paper, we discuss the major steps taken…

Stefaniak, Kristina R.; Winfrey, Merrie K.; Curtis, Anna C.; Kennedy, Sarah A. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2021
General chemistry laboratory curriculum reform is underway at a midsized state university through a collaborative, inclusive, and iterative approach. Using a backward design approach, faculty collaborated to actualize a shared vision, define laboratory learning objectives, and outline considerations for inclusivity during summer workshops that…

White, Jacob; Costilow, Kimberly; Dotson, Jacob; Mauldin, Robert; Schanandore, Mattie; Shockley, Denise – Journal of Chemical Education, 2021
In this guided-inquiry lesson, students were tasked with determining the efficacy of an at-home drinking water filter at removing lead (Pb) from tap water using graphite furnace atomic absorption spectroscopy by determining the concentration of lead before and after filtration. The lesson was structured to allow students to choose and perform…

Ma, Xiaoyu; Swedlund, Peter J. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2021
An experiment was developed for a first year food chemistry laboratory course that demonstrates the influence of several aspects of polysacharide structure on the rate of amylase catalyzed hydrolysis. The experiment would be particularly well-suited to a first year chemistry course that was targeted at nonchemistry majors, such as health related…
