2014 Student Research Conference:
27th Annual Student Research Conference

Synthesis and Characterization of Erythritol Sulfate, the Sweetest Sulfate Ester Aerosol
Matthew J. Kummer* and Kallie I. Hilsabeck
Dr. Tim Humphry, Faculty Mentor

Sulfate ester aerosols are common atmospheric pollutants which are associated with industrial processes. Their physical properties are not yet well-known. Erythritol is manufactured on an industrial scale as a "no-calorie" sugar alternative, and a synthesis route for its sulfate ester derivative has been proposed. Characterization of the intermediates and product are conducted primarily using proton and carbon nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) techniques.
