Chemistry research to be featured at ACS National Meeting

Aug 11, 2014

The research and paper focuses on the antioxidant values of grape pomace - meaning grape peels, stems and seeds - and attempts to explore the possibility of obtaining extracts from the leftover parts of the fruit.

Dr. Cheryl Samaniego is among the Kettering faculty who will be presenting at a conference in San Francisco this week.

Collaborative research between the chemical engineering and biochemistry departments at Kettering University will be featured at the 248th American Chemical Society National Meeting from August 10-14 in San Francisco, California. The research and paper focuses on the antioxidant values of grape pomace - meaning grape peels, stems and seeds - and attempts to explore the possibility of obtaining extracts from the leftover parts of the fruit.

Dr. Cheryl Samaniego and Dr. Lihua Wang coauthored the paper titled "Determination of antioxidant activities of superheated ethanol extracts of grape stems." Dr. Jonathan Wenzel, Dr. Michelle Ammerman, Dr. Ali Zand and students La'Shyla Nelson, Mitchum Tibbs and Korrine Ketchum are also co-authors on the publication. 

The paper is a part of the Division of Agricultural and Food Chemistry and was also one of the elite few that was selected for a presentation at the conference's Scimix on August 11. 

Samaniego and Wang will both represent Kettering at the conference in San Francisco.
