The Lab Report is the news blog of the Emory University Department of Chemistry. The Department of Chemistry at Emory University believes that the best teaching and research happens in the context of a scientific community. Together, we engage in creative problem-solving at the molecular level. Our collaborative research themes–catalysis, sustainable energy, and living/nonliving interfaces— are anchored by foundational strengths in biomolecular, inorganic, organic, and physical chemistry.
