The Eastern New York Intellectual Property Law Association (ENYIPLA) has named SUNY Oneonta Associate Professor of Chemistry Jacqueline Bennett its 2016 Inventor of the Year. Bennett was selected because of her contributions in green chemistry, most notably “Green Synthesis of Aryl Aldimines Using Ethyl Lactate,” a chemical process for which she received a U.S. patent in 2014. Bennett will be recognized at an ENYIPLA award dinner in the fall.
