Dear ACS Catalysis division members,
We are pleased to announce our 2023 ACS CATL division summer school webinar series on the Confluence of Kinetics and Thermodynamics in Catalysis. 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 small gift from the CATL division (funds permitting). 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 12th/ David Flaherty (Georgia Tech)
- July 19th/ Andreas Heyden (U. South Carolina)
- July 26th/ Adam Holewinski (CU Boulder)
- August 2nd/ Eranda Nikolla (U. Michigan)
Please find the single registration link for all four webinars here:
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. You can join the division through this link.
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.
