Central Missouri University Chooses MeasureNet for Chemistry Labs
March 31, 2007
The University of Central Missouri Department of Chemistry and Physics has selected MeasureNet for equipping its Chemistry division laboratories. MeasureNet capabilities installed at CMSU include probeware for temperature, pressure, pH, and voltage, as well as shared emission and absorption spectroscopy via the network's shared 1-nanometer resolution UV-vis spectrometer.
The University began its life in 1871, and was formally transformed into a teachers college in 1919. Today, its 1,561 acre campus is home to over 10,600 graduate and undergraduate students. Located about 50 miles southeast of Kansas City, the school is still noted for its teacher training programs—the University produces more graduates in the field of Education than any other institution in the state. Notable alumni include Carrie Evens—leader of the U.S. Temperance Movement, James Evans—the inventor of Cheerios cereal, and David Steward—CEO of World Wide Technology, Inc., the world's largest African-American owned company
"We are pleased to have such a prestigious Missouri institution as part of the MeasureNet Community ," says MeasureNet President Robert Voorhees. "I'd like to thank Professor Renee Cole (Physical Chemistry and Chemical Education) for her vision and tenacity, Chair Wayne Stalick, and the department's Steve Boone (Interim Dean of the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences) for their support." Using a cluster of 700 PCs, Professor Boone and his colleague Curtis Cooper discovered the largest known prime number (M32,582,657) in September, 2006 operating as part of the Great Internet Mersenne Prime Search (GIMPS).
