Chemistry undergraduates help fuel innovative energy research

Post  bejoy on Fri Jul 21, 2017 1:47 am

Paul Lauridsen is a year away from earning his bachelor’s degree, but the chemistry major is already working on the front lines of USC efforts to turn greenhouse gas into methanol fuel.

Lauridsen ‘18 spends 10 or more hours a week conducting research on transition metal catalysis in an organometallics lab. He considers this experience crucial to feeding his passion for chemistry and guiding his plans to attend graduate school.

“Sometimes the class is very theoretical,” Lauridsen said. “This is very hands on, real-world experience.” The work underway in the USC Loker Hydrocarbon Research Institute is also helping solve one of the world’s biggest challenges — the clean generation and storage of renewable energy.
