2013 Chemistry/Physics Seminar Series

Jaquan Williams, a master's degree candidate in the forensic science program, will present his master's thesis, "Comparative Metabolism of Phenanthro[3,4-b]thiophen and Its Carbon Analog Benzo[c]phenanthrene," at 12:30 p.m. today, February 21, in Science Building 272. This seminar series is sponsored by the Auxiliary Service Grant Allocation Committee, the Vice President for Student Affairs Office, and the Faculty-Student Association. The abstract is as follows:

Abstract
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and their sulfur-heterocyclic PAHs (thia-PAHs) formed by incomplete combustion of organic matter are commonly occurring persistent environmental contaminants (1). A number of thia-PAHs have shown significant mutagenic and carcinogenic activities. As noted with PAHs, these chemical contaminants also require metabolic
