Undergraduate students awarded NSF Research Fellowships

Abstract:
The human body contains only one enantiomer of each pair for most compounds. If the wrong enantiomer enters the human body, the results can be fatal. Many pharmaceutical drugs contain both enantiomers, which have to be separated before humans can take the drugs. Bartel is using nanotechnology to develop a fast and efficient technique for the separation process.

Recently, Bartel proved that gold nanoparticles coated with the amino acid cysteine were capable of separating a mixture of propylene oxide enantiomers. Bartel intends to incorporate nanotechnology into biology and medicine. She has been accepted into the Ph.D. program at the University of California, Berkeley, and plans to continue her research there next fall.
