Hylton McWhinney Ph.D.

Dr. Hylton McWhinney is a Professor of Chemistry, Emeritus at Prairie View A&M University. He earned a PhD (1990) from Texas A&M University, College Station in Analytical Chemistry, with specialization in Surface and Interfacial Characterization. In addition to his teaching and research activities, he has served as Assistant Dean in the office of Research and Graduate Studies at Prairie View. He directs the operation of the Surface Science Facility located in the Department of Chemistry. His synergistic and collaborative interactions include; the Naval Research Laboratory, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Battelle Pacific Northwest Laboratory, local and International Universities. Dr. McWhinney is the author and co-author of over 20 peer reviewed publications. He has been successful in securing research funding from several federal agencies, including the DOE, NSF and the Department of the Interior. His main research interests are: (1) Surface phenomena in environmental chemistry and environmental remediation which involve: speciation and transport of contaminants in the vadose zone; surface science applications to energy based pollution systems. (2) Surface chemistry of functional and structural materials, their properties and characterization. He is very keen on teaching with technology which enables the student to perform “real live” science tasks that teaches and enhances STEM concepts and principles. To that end, he has developed capabilities for using microLAB equipment for instruction in Analytical Chemistry at Prairie View A&M University.

Dr. McWhinney conducts microLAB workshops, manages exhibits at conferences, and looks forward to helping faculty implement microLAB in their chemistry courses.
