Chemistry Students as Co-Authors

As a primarily undergraduate program, Chapman’s chemistry students work closely with faculty who provide the mentoring and guidance to develop independent researchers. Many of our students begin research as early as their freshmen year.

Some become co-authors with faculty on research publications. Most attend and present at professional conferences, typically the American Chemical Society (ACS) regional and national meetings, and the Southern California Undergraduate Chemistry and Biochemistry student research conference.

Here’s a list of some of the publications our students have co-authored as undergraduates in Chapman’s Chemistry program:
