At its February 9th meeting, the Cincinnati Section of the American Chemical Society (CINTACS) named Georgetown alumna Apryll M. Stalcup (Ph.D. ’88, Martire), Professor of Chemistry at the University of Cincinnati, the 2011 Cincinnati Chemist of the Year. Following dinner at the February meeting, Professor Stalcup talked about “Separation SCIENCE.”
CINTACS selected Prof. Stalcup the 2011 Chemist of the Year “because of her internationally recognized expertise in the area of separation science.” CINTACS describes her as “a leader in devising new ways to exploit multiple aspects of molecular interactions simultaneously to develop new approaches to chemical separations.” According to CINTACS, “she has made significant contributions across the breath of separation science, from microscale to preparative scale.”
Professor Stalcup began working at the University of Cincinnati in 1996 and was promoted to Full Professor five years later. Current research in her laboratory explores new separation methods based on surface-confined ionic liquids, understanding the mechanisms of both chromatographic and electrophoretic separations and nuclear forensics. Research in her laboratory has resulted in over 100 publications including numerous book chapters, encyclopedia articles, invitations to present over sixty lectures, and one patent. She has served on the Editorial Boards of Chirality, Journal
of Chromatography B: Biomedical Applications, and Analyst and also on the Advisory
Board of Fresenius’ Journal of Analytical Chemistry, now Analytical and Bioanalytical
Chemistry. She serves on the Editorial Board of Trends in Analytical Chemistry
(TrAC) and on the Cincinnati Water Quality Advisory Board.
Details about her award and about CINTACS may be found in the February 2011 issue of the CINTACS newsletter.
