Synthesized Compound / Winning Photo Submission

Title: Synthetic Map

Description: "This is a compound I synthesized as part of my undergrad research. After filtering and drying, the solid product cracked and resembled a map of an old city, full of twisting streets and alleys. The comparison is apropos given the circuitous synthetic route I had to take to get to that final product."


Each year, UK Libraries' Science & Engineering Library hosts a photo contest, encouraging University of Kentucky students to submit their STEM-inspired photography for a chance to have their work permanently displayed in the Science & Engineering Library. The winning photographer also receives a library swag bag. Stay tuned for updates on next year's contest:
