Daniel Smith, graduate student in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, has received a Chemical Computing Group Excellence Award from the American Chemical Society. Winners of the award receive a $1,150 stipend and a copy of Chemical Computing Group’s Molecular Operating Environment software, and will be honored at a ceremony. The award was created to stimulate graduate student participation at American Chemical Society meetings, and it is given to five graduate students each spring and fall. Smith is currently pursuing a doctorate in chemistry with a concentration in computational chemistry. He is part of Konrad Patkowski’s research group, where he explores the weak intermolecular interactions between various small molecules and carbon nanotubes in order to obtain a better understanding of the physisorption process of carbon based nanostructures.
