Matthew J. Mio (Redaktør) ; Mark A. Benvenuto (Redaktør)

Can one correlate the philosophical musings of one of the most famous football coaches in history with the best ACS Student Member Chapters? Yes! The link is in the excellence. Award-winning Student Member Chapters-several leaders of which have been kind enough to write a chapter in this volume-all have caught excellence in one or more facets of what they do. Les mer

Om boka

Can one correlate the philosophical musings of one of the most famous football coaches in history with the best ACS Student Member Chapters? Yes! The link is in the excellence. Award-winning Student Member Chapters-several leaders of which have been kind enough to write a chapter in this volume-all have caught excellence in one or more facets of what they do.

Mio and Benvenuto began this journey to capture the best of Student Member Chapters back in 2015, when they asked some of the best and most active organizations' leadership to put into words what they did that puts them at the top. The editors realized there is not one, specific answer to such questions, but found a wealth of information in what their chapter authors reported. There are more voices in this wonderful chorus, voices of leaders who have great ideas and who have figured out ways to
make the fascination of chemistry communicable to our students and the general public. This volume represents some excellent input as to what makes a chapter award-winning, and what keeps its excellence sustainable.

Om forfatteren

Matthew Mio is a Professor at the University of Detroit Mercy in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. His research focuses on new transition metal catalyzed cross-coupling reactions. Projects include exploring both the mechanism and synthetic capabilities of these reactions, with particular emphasis on the generation of phenylacetylenes for use in nanoelectronics and supramolecular chemistry. He is also interested in studying the pedagogy of organic
chemistry. He has been co-advisor to the Detroit Mercy Chemistry Club (American Chemical Society Student Members) for over 16 years. Mio holds a B.S. in chemistry from the University of Detroit Mercy and a Ph.D. in organic chemistry from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He was awarded a Mellon
Fellowship to perform post-doctoral research and teaching at Macalester College (St. Paul, MN). Mio joined Detroit Mercy's faculty in 2002.



Mark Benvenuto is a Professor of Chemistry at the University of Detroit Mercy, in the Department

of Chemistry and Biochemistry. His research spans a wide array of subjects, including the use of energy-dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy to determine trace metal elements in land-based and aquatic plant matter, especially with regard to use in phyto-remediation of soil. Benvenuto received a B.S. in chemistry from the Virginia Military Institute, and after several years in the US Army, a Ph.D. in inorganic chemistry from the University of Virginia. After a post-doctoral fellowship at
the Pennsylvania State University, he joined the faculty at the University of Detroit Mercy in 1993.
