Jack Snodgrass library added to CESE collection

UVA's Center for Electrochemical Science and Engineering recently received a near 50 book donation from the family of Jack Snodgrass. Snodgrass worked at Reynolds aluminum company in Richmond and was a frequent collaborator with CESE.

This is the third such gift of books to the Center's library. Jerry Kruger (CHEM PhD), a world renown corrosion scientist, offered his collection to the library for use by center researchers. Rob Leggat (MSE 02) of US Steel donated books to the library as well.

Some of the rarer volumes within Snodgrass set are hard to find even within extensive university library collections. The volumes will be utilized as both sources of data as well as technical references covering proposed mechanisms of corrosion damage on aluminum alloys - - a significant part of the Center for Electrochemical Science and Engineering's research portfolio.


Books from the Snodgrass donation are designated by stickers inside each and a plaque in the library.

U.Va graduate students net four top spots at NACE International Corrosion 2016 conference

This March, CORROSION 2016 conference was held in Vancouver, British Columbia. The world’s largest corrosion conference and exposition, CORROSION offers students the opportunity to enter posters in one of three categories: (1) the Marcel Pourbaix category for the field of corrosion science; (2) the Mars Fontana category for the field of corrosion engineering; and (3) the Harvey Herro category for the field of applied corrosion technology. U.Va students won 4 of the possible 9 awards given in three categories.



Marybeth Parker - 2nd place, Harvey Herro
Noelle Co - 1st place Marcel Pourbaix Category (Corrosion Science)
RJ Santucci - 2nd place Marcel Pourbaix

Piyush Khullar - 1st place, Harvey Herro Category (Corrosion Technology)

Regarding all the U.Va student poster presentations Rob Kelly remarked, "I cannot count the number of positive remarks I heard about each one."
