The Simpson Research Group
The Simpson group receives notice that their proposal "Collaborative Research: Fundamental Studies on the Environmental Fate of Short-Chain and Emerging Fluorinated Alkyl Substances Using Mass-Spectrometry and Molecular Modelling" has been funded by the NSF for a total of $119,373. This research is a collaborative effort between the Simpson group and Dr. Diana Aga's group at the University at Buffalo.
Scott Simpson receives St. Bonaventure University's Junior Faculty Excellence Award for 2019.

The Simpson Research Group has been awarded a research grant from the American Chemical Society’s Petroleum Research Fund (ACS PRF) for their grant titled “Using Density Functional Theory to Predict Heterogeneous Catalysts for the Selective Formation of cis-2-butene from 1,2-butadiene”.
The Simpson Research Group was awarded a Keenan-Martine Grant for "Quantum Chemical Exercises for Current and Potential SBU Students". This grant provides some funding for new hardware and software.
