Corrine Elliott receives a Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship from the Organic Division of the American Chemical Society

Corrine "Nina" Elliott, an undergraduate student majoring in chemistry and mathematics at UK, is the receipient of a Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) from the American Chemical Soceity's Division of Organic Chemistry.  This $5,000 fellowship will allow Corrine to continue research in the Chemistry Department at the University of Kentucky for the Summer of 2016. Corrine's research proposal titled "Steric Manipulation of Small-Molecule Oxidation Potentials for Energy-Storage Applications" involves the design of synthesis of phenothiazine derivatives targeted at overcharge protection of high-voltage cathodes in lithium-ion batteries.  Her proposal is based on preliminary results under the guidance of faculty mentors Susan Odom and Chad Risko.
