CATL online educational seminar series (fall 2021)

Updated: Nov 19, 2021

As a new benefit to its members, the ACS CATL Division continues our online educational seminar series (2021). This continues our previous series last year.


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.
