Kettering University Gets NSF Grant For New Science Instrument

FLINT — Kettering University will be adding a CHNSO Elemental Determinator for Multidisciplinary Applied Research and Instruction, thanks to a $70,698 National Science Foundation Major Research Instrumentation grant.

Jonathan Wenzel, an assistant professor of chemical engineering at Kettering, is the principal investigator. The grant will procure a Carbon, Hydrogen, Nitrogen, Sulfur, and Oxygen (CHNSO) Elemental Determinator to augment the Chemistry analytical instrument suite presently in use for research and instruction.

The CHNSO Elemental Determinator will be used by a multidisciplinary group of faculty in the Biochemistry, Chemistry, and Chemical Engineering programs engaged in applied and fundamental research in a wide variety of areas including alternative energy, organic synthesis, pharmaceuticals and materials research.

Wenzel said the equipment will especially help students become coauthors on peer reviewed publications and/or presentations at local, regional, and national meetings. In addition to supporting student/faculty research, the CHNSO will enhance the educational mission of the department by broadening the educational background of junior- and senior-level chemistry and chemical engineering students.
