Paiva, Victor T. C.; Parma, Eduardo; Buffon, Regina – Journal of Chemical Education, 2020
For the past 10 years, the Virtual Tournament of Chemistry, TVQ, has been held in Brazil, engaging high school students with challenging questions that require cooperation, effort, and a literature search, while exploring the advantages of the Internet as a tool for self-instruction. The tournament has worked both as a way of narrowing the gap…

Iribe, Jessica; Hamada, Terianne; Kim, Hyesoo; Voegtle, Matt; Bauer, Christina A. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2020
The principles of chemical kinetics comprise one of the core topics that appear throughout chemistry. Standard kinetics lessons typically cover reaction rates and relative rates, rate laws, integrated rate laws, half-lives, collision theory, and the Arrhenius equation. They can also introduce a discussion of mechanisms as well, which may be the…

Atkinson, Molly B.; Krishnan, Sandhya; McNeil, LaShawn A.; Luft, Julie A.; Pienta, Norbert J. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2020
Active learning pedagogical approaches and methodologies have been shown to increase undergraduate student success. Specifically, the flipped classroom approach pushes course content outside of the classroom, allowing for the focus of each class period to be centered on student-student interactions and reducing student cognitive load in comparison…

Betancourt-Pérez, Rosa; Rodríguez, Julio; Muñoz-Hernández, Lorell – Journal of Chemical Education, 2020
The non-major's two-semester organic chemistry course at UPR-RP aims at developing a more integrated and meaningful understanding of the fundamentals of Organic Chemistry. To achieve this goal, we have implemented a novel instructional design that focuses on nine terminal objectives. The nine terminal objectives describe what students should be…

Cheng, Stephen C.; Ziffle, Vincent E.; King, Ryan C. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2020
An innovative food laboratory for a chemistry of food and cooking course has been developed for nonscience majors and under-represented students in science. To help these students succeed in science, a laboratory was designed to engage students using food and cooking as a medium for building a stronger foundation in chemistry. Each food laboratory…

Vargas, Santiago; Zamirpour, Siavash; Menon, Shreya; Rothman, Arielle; Häse, Florian; Tamayo-Mendoza, Teresa; Romero, Jonathan; Sim, Sukin; Menke, Tim; Aspuru-Guzik, Alán – Journal of Chemical Education, 2020
The increasing integration of software and automation in modern chemical laboratories prompts special emphasis on two important skills in the chemistry classroom. First, students need to learn the technical skills involved in modern scientific computing and automation. Second, applying these techniques in practice requires effective collaboration…

This article describes a graduate student-led effort to develop a climate survey to assess, advocate for, and improve the well-being and mental health of graduate students and postdocs in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Wisconsin--Madison. Graduate students have an increased incidence of depression relative to the general…

Rodriguez-Vasquez, Kelly A.; Cole, Aaron M.; Yordanova, Desislava; Smith, Rachel; Kidwell, Nathanael M. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2020
To empower high school and undergraduate students to become citizen scientists, we describe the design, construction, and operation of a multisensor device based on Arduino microcontroller technology to record atmospheric measurements relevant to secondary organic aerosols (SOAs). The handheld "AIRduino" multisensor device was built and…

Hensen, Cory; Glinowiecka-Cox, Gosia; Barbera, Jack – Journal of Chemical Education, 2020
To date, the efficacy of virtual experiments is not well-understood. To better understand what differences may exist between a hands-on learning environment and a virtual learning environment, three experiments were chosen for investigation. For each experiment, approximately half of the students completed a hands-on version of the experiment, and…

Carpenter, Suzanne; Beck, Jason – Journal of Chemical Education, 2020
Study abroad experiences, relatively rare in chemistry programs and encouraged by the American Chemical Society, are a way to advance the cultural competence of students. We describe a study abroad experience that includes an upper level chemistry course on fermentation. Many articles have described the integration of fermentation into lecture and…

Infrared (IR) thermography renders invisible infrared radiation with intuitive coloration in images and videos taken of objects, reactions, and processes. Educators can take advantage of this technology to extend students' sensory perception of chemical reactions or processes that absorb or release heat in rich detail. In theory, IR thermography…

Soong, Ronald; Pautler, Brent G.; Moser, Arvin; Jenne, Amy; Lysak, Daniel H.; Adamo, Antonio; Simpson, Andre J. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2020
Structure determination via NMR spectroscopy is a fundamental topic taught in many advanced level chemistry courses. Despite its importance as an analytical instrument, many students find the principle behind NMR-facilitated structure determination difficult to embrace. To this end, an artificial intelligence (AI) software package, namely,…

King, Ryan P.; Wagner, Alexander J.; Burtea, Alexander; King, Susan M. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2020
An undergraduate organic chemistry experiment has been developed that features asymmetric synthesis of an enantioenriched secondary alcohol, followed by determination of its absolute configuration using the competing enantioselective conversion (CEC) method. Students are given a ketone and an unknown enantiomer of CBS (Corey-Bakshi-Shibata)…

Lisensky, George; Dauzvardis, Fabian; Luo, Jiaqi; Horger, Jacob; Koenig, Emma – Journal of Chemical Education, 2020
Polymers and nanochemistry are important facets of chemistry. In this experiment, students synthesize monodispersed poly(methyl methacrylate) nanospheres from the addition or chain polymerization of a rapidly stirred aqueous mini-emulsion of methyl methacrylate. The 2,2'-azobis(2-methylpropionamidine) dihydrochloride serves as a heat activated,…
