The Department of Chemistry courses at UWF are typically small, allowing our instructors to pay attention to individual students. Nevertheless, our laboratories are inordinately well-equipped with modern instrumentation.
The Department of Chemistry courses at UWF are typically small, allowing our instructors to pay attention to individual students. Nevertheless, our laboratories are inordinately well-equipped with modern instrumentation. We pride ourselves on giving students hands-on training with state-of-the-art instrumentation, so our graduates are extremely well-prepared for the job market and professional or graduate school.
UWF students win research poster competition at the 2023 American Chemical Society National Meeting
Coauthors Bianca Dawson and Farah Lino recently won Best Undergraduate Poster Award in the Division of Cellulose and Renewable Materials at the National Meeting of the American Chemical Society in Indianapolis, IN. The two UWF Chemistry majors presented research titled Preparation of chitosan-based films for photosensitization of singlet oxygen and are working in collaboration with Dr. Patrick S. Barber (Chemistry faculty). Their research seeks to develop sustainable methods and materials for water purification and environmental remediation.
Each year, the ACS Cellulose and Renewable Materials (CELL) Division in collaboration with Springer, the publisher of the periodical CELLULOSE, recognizes the outstanding research presented by students at the ACS Spring National Meeting. The awards recognize students who communicate with a clear understanding of the originality and creativity of their investigations into applications of cellulose chemistry and renewable materials. Winners are selected by a panel of judges who evaluate all eligible entries during the CELL Division poster session.

One endowment. Endless opportunities.
HMCSE students need your support. Thanks to a generous matching gift from Drs. Muhammad and Fatema Rashid, all gifts made to the STEM scholarship for females and first-generation students by this Fall will be matched up to 50,000 dollars to create a $100K endowment that will benefit STEM students for years to come.
New Endowment to Honor Inaugural Dean
We are proud to announce the creation of a new endowment in the Hal Marcus College of Science and Engineering. This endowment, created to enhance the chemistry department, was established to honor the Inaugural Dean of the Hal Marcus College of Science and Engineering, Dr. Michael T. Huggins.
