We are pleased to announce our ACS CATL division summer school webinar series. The summer school will consist of a series of four one hour lectures held over four weeks that will teach foundational ideas in catalysis research. Lectures will be followed by an interactive Q&A session. This series will be an outstanding introduction for students new to the field. The webinars are particularly geared toward graduate students, but students and more senior researchers alike are welcome to attend. Attendance is free to division members, and members who attend all 4 webinars will receive a certificate of participation and CATL division branded spirit wear. The lectures will cover three key fundamental topics that are essential for carrying out state of the art catalysis research, followed by a 4th lecture illustrating how these approaches can be used in a promising emerging field.
The lectures will cover the following topics:
Date/Speaker/Topic (All webinars will be held at 2PM Eastern time)
July 13th/ Michele Sarazen (Princeton)/ Catalytic kinetics and transport Phenomena
July 20th/ Liney Arnadottier (Oregon State)/ Coupling experiments and theory
July 27th/ George Tsilomelekis (Rutgers)/ Spectroscopy & catalysis
August 3rd/ Phil Christopher (UCSB)/ Catalysis with supported single atoms
Registration for the webinars is free for CATL division members. CATL division membership is free for graduate students who are ACS members. CATL division membership is similarly $10 for affiliates (non ACS members) and regular ACS members https://www.acs-catalysis.org/membership. If you are not sure about your ACS and technical division membership status, please check the ACS membership website.
Please help us to spread the word and encourage your students and colleagues to sign up! Space is limited, so please act fast to reserve a spot.
