University of Tulsa chemical engineering senior Luis Juarez and chemistry senior Madison Reavis were recently selected to participate in the 25th Annual Research Day at the Capitol in Oklahoma City.
Twenty-two undergraduate students representing 16 Oklahoma colleges and universities were identified to participate in the prestigious event, which was canceled due to COVID-19 health risks. The event is designed to raise awareness of the outstanding undergraduate research at Oklahoma’s colleges and universities.
Reavis’ research is a kinetic study of the non-enzymatic hydrolysis of aqueous l-arginine ethyl ester in vitro. Juarez’s research focuses on electrochemistry, specifically exploring Silicon Dioxide (SiO2), the main component of sand, for potential new optoelectronic technologies.
Research Day is sponsored by the National Science Foundation, the Oklahoma Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research Oklahoma (EPSCoR) and Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education.
