Researchers at NJIT have discovered a novel method of changing the chemical characteristics of carbon nanotubes by heating them in a closed vessel microwave oven. Somenath Mitra, PhD (at left) and Zafar Iqbal, PhD, both professors of chemistry and environmental sciences, will discuss their findings on March 17 from 8:30 a.m.-12:15 p.m. at the 229th national meeting of the American Chemical Society in San Diego. “We understand ourselves to be the first in the world to have discovered this method,” said Mitra. “The beauty is that our method is green and clean.”  >>
Sanjay V. Malhotra, PhD, an assistant professor of chemistry and environmental science at NJIT who has been promoting further study of chiral ionic liquids, was recently named the invited chairman of an upcoming conference on green chemistry to be held in January of 2006 in New Delhi, India. Because it's possible to synthesize chiral forms of ionic liquids, they hold great promise for advancing basic biomedical research as well as facilitating the manufacture of pharmaceuticals.  “Properly formulated,” said Malhotra, “these organic salts, which are found in natural substances as common as pine cones, could be a safe and effective way to dissolve and recover dangerous chemicals.” >>
Somenath Mitra, PhD, professor of chemistry at NJIT, has edited Sample Preparation Techniques in Analytical Chemistry, a new text that focuses on teaching and reinforcing necessary pretreatment steps used in various aspects in chemical sciences and engineering. >>
