Professor Gonghu Li Receives NSF CAREER Award
Gonghu Li, Assistant Professor of Chemistry at UNH, has received a prestigious Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) award from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to support his research in solar fuel generation.
Professor Li's Research Group
The CAREER award, which totals $526,727 over five years, will allow Professor Li and his students to investigate recycling carbon dioxide into fuels using innovative catalytic systems. Carbon dioxide is thermodynamically stable, and its conversion often requires high energy. This project is focused on carbon dioxide activation via low-energy pathways, in which two metal centers work cooperatively to convert carbon dioxide into fuels under light irradiation. The low-energy pathways will be investigated using both experimental and theoretical methods. This CAREER award also supports educational activities, including annual solar energy workshops, to effectively disseminated sustainability concepts to K-12 students and the public. This project will provide excellent opportunities for educating the current and emerging workforce in energy-related fields to increase the national talent pipeline in clean energy, materials and catalysis science.

Alumni Paul Anderson Receives Carothers Award
Paul Anderson was named the recipient of the 2013 Carothers Award by the Delaware section of the American Chemical Society. The Wallace H. Carothers Award was established by the Delaware section of the ACS as a memorial to Wallace H. Carothers, who was one of the founders of modern polymer chemistry. The purpose of the award is to honor innovators who have made noteworthy contributions in the industrial application of chemistry.
Dr. Anderson received his B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Vermont in 1959 and his Ph.D. with Bob Lyle at UNH in 1963. After post-doctoral research with Professor Meinwald at Cornell, he joined Merck Sharp and Dohme, where he eventually became Vice President for Chemistry. Dr. Anderson led research efforts in the development of numerous groundbreaking pharmaceuticals, including simvastatin and ZOCOR. Under his leadership significant advances in the treatment of HIV infections were accomplished through the synthesis of inhibitors of HIV-reverse transcriptase and HIV protease.
