Dr. Greg Hogan, assistant professor of chemistry at Texas A&M University-Texarkana, will discuss his research on “The Intercalation and Molecular Transport of Guest Molecules into Hydrogen-Bonded Metal-Organic Frameworks (HMOFs)” at a University Honors program colloquium Tuesday, April 11, at noon in University Center 217 on the A&M-Texarkana campus, 7101 University Ave., Texarkana, Texas.

“The presented research will focus on the synthesis of hydrogen-bonded metal-organic frameworks and their applications into guest exchange or molecular storage.  The investigation of these frameworks will solely lie into two classifications: a close-packed system and an “open” or porous system,” Dr. Hogan explained. “In order to study guest exchange or storage abilities, the framework’s structural integrity and it ability to ‘host’ molecules will be studied through a variety of analytical techniques.  The analytical techniques in question will rely heavily on single-crystal x-ray diffraction, powder x-ray diffraction, thermal analysis and GC-MS: gas chromatography – mass spectrometry.”

The major industrial application is in the area of storage, catalysis and optics, Dr. Hogan said.

A&M-Texarkana recently added a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry to its College of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics curriculum. Included are courses for fulfilling undergraduate degree requirements in two concentrations:  General Chemistry and Secondary Teacher Certification.

The University Honors Colloquia are a series of scholarly talks and presentations offered throughout the academic year. They provide a venue for University Honors students and faculty to present their research. The program also brings speakers to campus from outside the university community.

The presentation is open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
