50 Years Ago: Cyclobutadieneiron tricarbonyl synthesis

In early 1965 researchers working under UT chemistry professor Rowland Pettit reported the landmark synthesis of this iron complex of cyclobutadiene, which for the first time was shown to have aromatic properties. It opened a fruitful period of exploration in the quest to create the elusive cyclobutadiene in its free state. (J. Am. Chem. Soc. 87, 1965, 131-2.) [2/3/15]

New Journals: ACS Biomaterials Science and Engineering and ACS Infectious Diseases

ACS has launched two more specialty journals in 2015. [1/23/15]

100 Years Ago: William Thornton Read

william thornton read
William Thornton Read (1886-1972) was appointed Instructor in chemistry for the spring term of 1915. A student of J.R. Bailey, Read had earned an M.A. in organic chemistry at UT and went on to earn his PhD at Yale in 1921. He was the founding professor in the chemistry department at Texas Technological College (now Texas Tech) in 1925. He authored an important textbook in industrial chemistry and was subsequently dean of chemistry at Rutgers University. [1/6/15]

Guide to reading Journal Articles

The Royal Society of Chemistry has issued a brief guide for students on deciphering the modern scientific journal article, which can be mystifying to those just starting out. [1/6/15]

UT Chemistry Ranks 7th in US Chemistry "Productivity"

The Nature Index ranks UT Austin in the top 50 of three disciplines in terms of research productivity, as defined by publications in 68 "top" science journals (also selected by Nature). Chemistry ranks 16th in the world and 7th in the US in their metrics. [12/3/14]
