Scholarship of Discovery
Natural product chemistry is a branch of chemistry that deals with the isolation, identification, and study of the chemical characteristics of chemical substances produced by living organisms. The southwestern United States has a variety of indigenous plants many of which have not been investigated for their chemical compounds but have Native American herbal uses. The aim of this summer internship was to do extractions on plants and test them for medical potential.
