This award was established to encourage college students to do innovative chemistry research. Ms. Lin won this award with her master’s degree thesis titled “Kinetics of Methyl Vinyl Ketone Oxide, A Resonance-Stabilized Criegee Intermediate, Studied by UV Absorption Spectrometry.”
“I wish to thank my advisor Prof. Jim Jr-Min Lin for giving me precious advice. He has taught me how to do research and inspires me to think critically. I am also grateful to all the colleagues who have worked with me. They helped me tackle obstacles and accomplish the research. Science is fascinating. Though sometimes it is frustrating to encounter difficulties, it is a great joy to solve problems and learn new things,” said Ms. Lin.
