Chemistry Symposium to Feature Nobel Laureate Robert Grubbs
COLLEGE STATION -- The Science Program at Texas A&M University at Qatar and the Department of Chemistry at Texas A&M University are hosting a Sept. 27 symposium on the Texas A&M main campus titled "Strategy and Design in Transition Metal-Catalyzed Reactions" to honor 2005 Nobel Prize in Chemistry recipient Dr. Robert H. Grubbs.
Grubbs, the Victor and Elizabeth Atkins Professor of Chemistry at the California Institute of Technology, recently became an adjunct professor at Texas A&M at Qatar, where he holds the Qatar Petrochemical Company (QAPCO) Chair of Polymer Science and Engineering.
The symposium will run from 2 to 5:30 p.m. in Room 2104 of the Chemistry Building and conclude with Grubbs' keynote presentation, "The Synthesis of Large and Small Molecules Using Olefin Metathesis Catalysts." His talk will be preceded by lectures from Princeton University's Dr. Abigail G. Doyle and Jerzy Klosin of The Dow Chemical Company. Delegations from Texas A&M at Qatar and QAPCO will be in attendance.
