IUP Chemistry major Breeanna Mintmier and Indiana High School student Nyla Numan presented research posters at the 13th annual Student Poster Session at Drexel University.
On February 21, 2013, the Philadelphia section of the American Chemical Society and the ACS Younger Chemists Committee hosted the poster session at Drexel University. The annual event provides a forum for high school students and university undergraduate and graduate students to present their research to peers and colleagues in industry and academia. Approximately 90 students from the region presented their work.
Mintmier presented “Cellulose Particle Size and Crystallinity Influence Cellulase Kinetics,” and Numan presented “Effect of Methanol and Ethanol on Miller's Assay for Reducing Sugars.”
Both Mintmier and Numan are working on projects with biomass utilization with John Ford and Jaeju Ko in the Department of Chemistry.
