We had a great group of students this summer. Here we are mid-summer (June 27) bidding goodbye to Dwaine. We will miss him. Later we also said goodbye to our visiting student Sixbert (Belhaven University). They will both live on in our minds as we finish working with their research results! We’re sure to meet them again during conferences or other travel, and wish them the best.
Meanwhile, the fall semester is nearly upon us…..we’re looking forward to a good and busy year!
Finally, all in one place!

Congratulations to the 2014 graduates of Wake Forest University!
Two of our undergraduates, Dwaine Hodges and Ellen Petryna, graduated with B.S. degrees in chemistry. We’re very proud of them! It was a beautiful day for a graduation ceremony, and we look forward to hearing of Dwaine’s and Ellen’s future successes!
Prof. ACJ, Dwaine
Dwaine presented an Honors Thesis on April 25th, another group milestone! We’ll be working on finalizing a publication on that work this summer!
Yuyang’s wife Lin Zhang earned her M.Sci. this week too.

Undergraduate Dwaine Hodges ’14 did an excellent job representing our group at the 46th Southeast Undergraduate Research Conference, held at UT-Knoxville. He gave on oral presentation on his novel phosphine gold complexes.
In even better news, he received the award for “Best Presentation in the Inorganic Division!”
Here’s a picture of Dwaine with his work from the 2013 Wake Forest Fall Undergraduate Research Day.
