Nov. 30, 2016 - Dr. Isaac VonRue, associate professor of chemistry and physics at King’s College, and research students Derek Kline and John Conway have published their research, titled "Differential Scanning Calorimetry Study of the Impact of Annealing Conditions on Poly(ε-caprolactone) Thermogels," in the “Journal of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry.”
A resident of Nanticoke, Kline is a junior majoring in chemistry. Conway of Pleasantville, N.Y., graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in general science with a concentration in chemistry from King’s in May 2016. He is currently attending medical school at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
A polymer chemist, VonRue was awarded tenure at King’s in 2014. He was the principal investigator on a grant of nearly $88,000 awarded to King’s from the National Science Foundation to purchase a differential scanning calorimeter. Prior to coming to King’s in 2008, he earned his doctorate in chemistry from the University of North Carolina and served as a visiting professor at the University of Puget Sound and Stetson University.
