about metallic bond
Hey all- Out of curiosity , I would like to get a post going for our LSUS chemistry / physics fb page. If you are a graduate, post to this wall and let us know what you're doing these days?


The Department of Chemistry and Physics at LSU Shreveport wants to keep in touch! "Like" us if you're a current student, an alumni of Chemistry, Biochemistry or Physics, or just have fond memories about the time you've spent with us at LSUS!

The Chemistry and Physics Department at LSUS grants BS degrees in Chemistry, Biochemistry, and Physics along with minors in Chemistry, Electronics, and Physics. We are a department of ten faculty - six Chemistry, four Physics - and around 100 majors. 05/13/2020

Kary Mullis dies at age 74

Kary Mullis, the Nobel laureate inventor of PCR (the polymerase chain reaction) has died at age 74. Next to the discovery of DNA itself, PCR was the greatest biochemistry discovery of the 20th Century.

Sometimes called "molecular photocopying," the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is a fast and inexpensive technique used to "amplify" - copy - small segments of DNA. Because significant amounts of a sample of DNA are necessary for molecular and genetic analyses, studies of isolated pieces of DNA would be nearly impossible today without using PCR amplification. Biochemist received Nobel Prize for invention of PCR and attracted controversy for positions on climate change and AIDS 08/06/2019

Could Ultracapacitors Replace Batteries In Future Electric Vehicles?

Ultracapacitors are fascinating. The chemists and physicists of the future may achieve the breakthroughs needed to allow ultracapacitors to replace batteries. Ultracapacitors or supercapacitors, if you prefer, are vastly superior to batteries in certain circumstances. But could advancements like the user of graphene enable them to replace batteries in the future? 04/13/2019

Big Bang May Have Created a Mirror Universe Where Time Runs Backwards

The Big Bang may have created a mirror universe where time runs backwards. While time moves forward in our universe, it may run backward in another mirror universe that was created on the “other side” of the Big Bang. 02/08/2019

Friedlieb Ferdinand Runge, the godfather of caffeine

Today we commemorate the 225th birthday of Friedlieb Ferdinand Runge, the "Godfather of Caffeine", and the discoverer of quinine. Today's Google doodle celebrates Friedlieb Ferdinand Runge, who was the first to isolate caffeine and quinine but his contributions to chemistry are often overlooked 12/20/2018

A long-awaited battery that would cut electric-vehicle costs may finally be close 24M is reducing manufacturing costs by stripping out extraneous materials—and just got $22 million to begin building its first commercial factory. 12/10/2018

Fluoride discovery could lead to much longer-lasting EV batteries

Sometimes it’s beneficial to focus on “the negative”.....when it’s electronegative. Battery breakthrough could help fluoride trump lithium.
