ACS CATL Division Educational Seminar Series: From Basics to Applications of Catalysis

Updated: Nov 17, 2020

As a new benefit to its members, the ACS CATL Division introduces an online educational seminar series this fall (2020). The series will consist of lectures and panel discussions with the objective to promote catalysis science. Content will include concepts and research approaches in catalysis science, latest innovations in industrial catalytic processes, and potential career paths from both the academic and industrial perspectives. The ACS CATL Educational Seminar Series intends to bridge the gap between Chemical Engineering/Chemistry textbooks and original research articles, and the series is particularly addressing junior members of the Division, especially graduate students and post-doctoral degree candidates, and experienced researchers entering a new sub-field of catalysis.
