Look it's me!  Work and Research  

Hi! I'm Autumn. This blog is for my chemistry updates in school, work, and life.

I'm a fourth-year Chemistry major with an American Chemical Society concentration at The College of Saint Benedict/Saint John's University.

I recently was accepted into the research program here, working on the use of functionalized dendrimers in catalysis. I work at Montana State University in Bozeman and the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University .

In addition to research, I work in the chemistry department at CSBSJU, helping with developing new labs and as a teaching assistant for intro chem, analytical chemistry, and upper division integrated lab.

I have high hopes of getting my PhD in chemistry and am applying to schools this fall.

Chemistry is an extremely interesting, wonderful topic and I hope you find it as amazing as I do :)

I wish I could say sketchy needles are something I didn’t find often.

The Phenylamine Sulfonate endpoint in a gravimetric titration to determine the concentration of iron in an “unknown” sample.

Re-sharing this for you guys during my break. Hopefully I’ll have a fancy new surprise for you when school starts again! ;)

I found this along with some instructions on how to run an NMR. I think this is the graph paper they used to use. I hope not, that’s so old :’(

Remember when we went to that regional ACS meeting in Missoula, Montana to present our research? Well, here’s a story. Apparently we were being judged on what we were presenting and we had no idea until we got there. 
Being the awesome chemists and presenters that we are, Asha and I won! Forgot to upload this then, but here we are having our picture taken after accepting the award.
