Chemistry Students Earn Presentation Awards at ACS "Mini-Meeting"

The Oberlin contingent has just returned from this year's American Chemical Society Cleveland Section Meeting-in-Miniature at Cleveland State University. We are proud to announce that the undergraduate presentation awards were swept by Oberlin! The awards were granted to Aaron Shmookler (working with Jason Belitsky) for his talk entitled Studies in aminooxyserine native chemical ligation and Michael Moore (working with Norm Craig)for his talk entitled Analysis of rotational structure in the high-resolution infrared spectrum of cis,cis-1,4-difluorobutadiene and the sythesis of its isotopomers. All the Oberlin students represented the college admirably.
