Chemistry at ESF

The Department of Chemistry at SUNY-ESF is unique in that it is organized around the interdisciplinary areas of biochemistry and natural products chemistry, environmental chemistry and polymer chemistry. It stresses a strong foundation in the traditional areas of chemistry (analytical, inorganic, organic and physical chemistry) plus integration of these areas into its specialties. Thus, students at all levels enjoy the advantages of a chemistry program with specialties aligned with the needs of the 21st century.

The department is committed to maintaining its leading role in extending the state of knowledge in its specialties. The department’s home is the 71,000-square-foot Edwin C. Jahn Laboratory. This state-of-the-art facility for research and teaching is well equipped with instruments needed for modern chemical research. The department involves all of its students in research, giving them familiarity with the actual practice of chemistry.

Chemistry Paper of the Month

Tunneling conductivity in anisotropic nanofiber composites: a percolation-based model

Avik P Chatterjee and Claudio Grimaldi

"We have used ideas from percolation theory to model the conductance in composites containing oriented (or aligned) nanofibers. The degree of alignment in such systems is often quantified by the average (or mean) value of an orientational order parameter. Not surprisingly, the predicted conductance depends upon the composition and average degree of particle alignment. However, our results also predict a possible dependence of the conductance upon the standard deviation of the degree of alignment (or the breadth of the distribution over particle
orientations) for a fixed average value of the orientational order parameter."
