Through the TeX-ray program, principal investigators and students from other institutions have the opportunity to obtain single crystal structure data in collaboration with Dr. Lynch. Collaborators participating in this program include the following:

Austin Community College (ACC), greater Austin, TX area

Prof. Shawn Amorde, in collaboration with Prof. Sean Roberts (UT-Austin Chemistry), currently lead a cohort of ACC students in an immersive research experience through the CREATE program, an offshoot of their NSF-funded GREAT program (CHE-1610412, CHE-1654404). Students in the CREATE lab synthesize novel organic dyes with potential utility in solar energy conversion. Single crystal XRD structures will be key to understanding their properties in the solid state.

Huston-Tillotsen University

Prof. Yalan Ning has used the TeX-ray program to obtain crystal structures of compounds synthesized by her undergraduates in her teaching and research labs. Students have presented these structures at the ACS Southwest Regional Meeting and have gone on to attend graduate school (University of Illinios-Chicago) and work in industry (Pharmaceutical Product Development). Huston-Tillotsen is a historically black university in Austin, TX and serves primarily undergraduates.

UT Freshman Research Initiative

Undergraduates in the Luminators stream frequently use the X-ray instruments to collect data on organic molecules and lanthanide coordination compounds for their research projects under the guidance of Research Educator, Dr. Lauren DePue.  Students present their work at the university level, regional, and national conferences.  More information about the undergraduate stream can be found on their website.
