Chemistry Education Resources
March 20-21, 2015
Front Range Community College – Westminster Campus
3645 West 112th Avenue Westminster, CO 80031
We currently are looking for colleagues who would like to contribute to our program by giving a presentation, leading a workshop, or participating in a panel discussion. We especially encourage topics related to our theme “Chemistry Education Resources”. If you would like to present on a different topic, please do not hesitate to submit an abstract, as we encourage as diverse a program as possible. The due date for submitting abstracts is March 6th, 2015.
The latest conference updates will be available on the 209th conference website:
Dr. Denis Kissounko email@example.com
Jason Jadin firstname.lastname@example.org
We are excited to highlight research from two Colorado State University Chemistry faculty members.
Professor Jamie Neilson will present,
“Achieving Materials By Design through Solid-State Metathesis: Kinetic Intermediates and Polymorph Selection”
To prepare a “material by design” is a paradigm towards which we strive in solid-state and materials chemistry. From solid-state metathesis reactions, there are myriad pathways by which solid-state reactions occur. This allows us to identify and isolate kinetic intermediates, as well as metastable products with desirable physical properties, bringing us closer towards a paradigm of materials by design.
Professor Chris Ackerson will present, “Inorganic Nanoparticles and their Biological Applications”
The surfaces and ligand shells of inorganic nanoparticles define much of the biological interactions of inorganic nanoparticles. The surface structure and reactivity of biologically applied gold nanoparticles will be presented. The biogenic synthesis of selenium nanoparticles and their cellular imaging applications will also be presented.
Please note the CSU Chemistry department has an invited speaker at 4 pm in Chemistry Building room A101, “Chemical-proteomic strategies to investigate reactive cysteines,” given by professor Eranthie Weerapana of Boston College. Please consider arriving early to attend this event.
Location: Colorado State University Lory Student Center – Grey Rock Room
Price: $20 for regular ACS members
$10 for students and retirees
