Scientists Present Ground-Breaking Research at National American Chemical Society Meeting

Findings from 23 diverse studies conducted by Columbia University researchers are being presented March 28-April 1 at the 227 th national meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS) in Anaheim, California.

The studies were carried out by more than two dozen Columbia University researchers from such fields as chemistry, applied physics and mathematics, psychiatry, engineering, and earth and environmental sciences.

For information on any of the papers, please contact Columbia University's Office of Public Affairs at 212-854-5573. The following is a sampling of the broad range of Columbia researchers' ground-breaking work:

  • "The Impact of Long-Term Hydrological Fluctuations on Changes in Vegetation and Carbon Fluxes in Hudson Estuary Wetlands";
  • "Capturing Carbon Dioxide Directly From the Atmosphere";
  • "Structure of Odor Plumes and Relation to Insect Ethology";
  • "Teaching the Elements of Nanotechnology in Undergraduate Science and Engineering Courses: LEDs and Lightbulbs."

The American Chemical Society is the largest scientific society worldwide, with an international membership of 161,000 chemists and chemical engineers.
