There will be a Chemistry seminar on Friday, September 14 at 1:00 PM in room 230 of Montgomery Hall presented by Dr. Greg Hogan, Assistant Professor at Texas A & M University - Texarkana.

Dr. Hogan ( a UL Lafayette BS Graduate) will present a seminar entitled:  Are Hydrogen-Bonded Metal-Organic Frameworks selective in Their Intercalative Methods?

The quest for developing and creating new functional, layered frameworks has been at the forefront for many crystal engineers and material scientists.  Here we describe the synthesis of a versatile hydrogen-bonded metal-organic framework that contains the ability to intercalate small molecules.  Is it possible for the framework to selectively control the intercalation process, i.e. coordinative vs. non-coordinative?  This research project will discuss the investigation of these two types of intercalation methods and the ability of the framework to allow intercalation to occur.  All samples of interest in this study will be examined by thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), powder XRD, and single crystal XRD, where possible.
