C laemistr y Top: Kay Darrow heats a chemical in the lab for a project. Bottom: Group Researching new ad ancements Two new degree programs, bachelor of science and bachelor of arts in biochemistry, were offered in the fall by the department of chemistry, said Dr. Tommy McCord, department chairman. He said the BS. in biochemistry was recommended for students who planned careers as professional biochemists or who planned to work toward advanced degrees in biochemistry. The degree was designed to meet the ac- creditation standards ofthe American Chemical Society. The B.A. degree was designed principally for students who wished to receive a degree in biochemistry in conjunc- tion with the completion of a pre-professional program in medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, pharmacy or op- tometry, McCord said. The department had the qualified faculty, laboratory facilities, equipment and library holdings to offer these new degree programs in biochemistry, McCord said. The chemistry department also added about 375,000 worth of new equipment during the school year. Hewlett Packard donated a gas chromatograph and a microprocessor controller worth almost 317,000 as part of its equipment gl'kif1IpI'Og1'21ITT. Other equipment, including an infrared and an ultravioletfvisible spectrophotometer. were purchased with money donated by friends and alumni, McCord said. Both of these instruments were interfaced to a computer data sta- tion and a printer, which were given to the school by the Perkin-Elmer Corp. with the purchase of the infrared spec- trophotometer. Several software packages for both spec- trophotometers were also purchased. The new equipment not only provided students with an opportunity to train as professional chemists, but also let faculty perform research and analyses, McCord said. lfive members of the faculty received grants totaling 31-19,474 for research and equipment during 1982-83. Dr. Alvie Davis received money from the Robert A. Welch Foundation and the ACI' Research Council for his project, "Synthesis and Properties of Nitrogen Heterocyclesf' McCord also received money from the Welch Foundation for his work with "Synthesis and Chemistry of Amino Acids," and the ACU Research Council gave a grant tojohn Bradford for his research on "Trace Analysis of Metals Us- ing Ion Exchange Resin-Loaded Papers and Electrochemical Techniques." The AClT Research Council gave money for the study of "Interaction of Atoms and Molecules at Catalytic Surfaces" by Dr. Robert Iiance, and the Welch Foundation donate funds to Dr. Bennett Hutchinson for his work on "Applic: tions of the Metal Isotope Techniques to Vibrational Spei tra" and to Dr, Perry Reeves for his research on "Studies r Some Metalstabilized Carbonium Ions." Faculty members attended a number of workshops, cor ferences and seminars across the country during the schoc year, and three chemistry students presented papers at tl? American Chemical Society Meeting-in-Miniature. Davi Hance and McCord were three of 31 research associate selected to the Republic of Texas Research Associates Inc., corporation that offered consultant services for chemistt and physics. fTummy Fielder '-il 5 . picture, FRONT ROW' Alvie Davis, Bennett Hutchinson, Tommy McCord, Floyd Dunn.
