Paper by Julie Haack Featured in the ACS Nexus – Green Chemistry Newsletter

A research paper by UO Chemistry and Biochemistry faculty Julie Haack was featured in an article in the March edition of the Nexus – Green Chemistry Newsletter titled “Effectively Communicating the Need for Green Chemistry.”

The paper, “If Chemists Don’t Do It, Who Is Going To?” Peer-driven Occupational Change and the Emergence of Green Chemistry, was co-written by Jennifer Howard-Grenville, Andrew J. Nelson, Andrew G. Earle, Julie A. Haack, and Douglas M. Young. It was first published January 19, 2017 in Administrative Science Quarterly.

In their paper, Dr. Haack and her colleagues investigate the emergence and growth of “green chemistry”—an effort by chemists to encourage other chemists to reduce the health, safety, and environmental impacts of chemical products and processes—and explore how green chemistry advocates influence how their peers do their work.

About the McNair Scholar Symposium
The University of Oregon celebrates the research achievements of its McNair Scholars during the annual McNair Symposium. These achievements are made possible by faculty mentors who guide Scholars through scholarship activities and help prepare them for the challenges and culture of graduate school.

McNair Scholars participate in paid summer research internships in their fields of study. During the internships, students are involved in original research culminating in a presentation of their findings. Held winter term, the McNair Symposium provides a public forum for students to share their work with peers, mentors, faculty and staff, family members, and the general public.
