Playing with Asbestos: Synthesizing Organosilicate Material Systems

The focus of my research is on the creation of new materials derived from naturally occurring silicate minerals. Silicates, like asbestos, have in them a backbone of siloxane networks (Si-O-Si linkages) that are held in place in a mineral framework. These silicate backbone linkages are tough, flexible, and highly organized: properties that are very desirable in polymer chemistry. These properties, however, are trapped in the mineral framework of the silicate which limits their usefulness and occasionally presents health hazards (as was the case with asbestos). Chemical modification of these silicate backbones creates a hybrid system that can offer the best of both worlds in a new material. The tough, flexible, and organized silicate framework is still present, but can be combined with other properties tailored to the desired application. About Nexus: Nexus is a seminar series presented by Utica College faculty members, in which they discuss their research interests and scholarly pursuits. It is an opportunity for participants to explore new findings and viewpoints and share ideas with faculty, students, and the local community. All lectures are held in Willard Conference Room, DePerno Hall. Refreshments are served at 2:15 p.m.; seminars begin at 2:30 p.m. Call (315) 792-3028 for more information.

On Stage: Neighborhood 3: Requistion of Doom

Neighborhood 3: Requisition of Doom By Jennifer Haley In a suburban subdivision with identical houses, parents find their teenagers addicted to an online horror video game. The game setting? A subdivision with identical houses. The goal? Smash through an army of zombies to escape the neighborhood for good. But as the line blurs between virtual and reality, both parents and players realize that fear has a life of its own.” (From Samuel French) March 7, 8, and 9 at 8:00 p.m. and March 10 at 2:00 p.m. in the Strebel Student Center Auditorium. Tickets are $4 for general admission, and are available at the door.
