Tom came all the way from University of Bordeaux, in Bordeaux French to work on mechanochemistry with Professor James Mack.
Tom studied Mechanochemical Catalysis using ball milling. By just using the combination of stainless steel and water, Tom has been able to reduce various functional groups in a cheap, safe and sustainable way.
Take a look at this article that Tom wrote for UC-Chem undergraduate journal.
We are grateful for the support from UC International for their support and Professors James Mack NSF-1465110 funding to make it possible for Tom to participate in the REU program summer 2017
