David Lewis, Univ. of Wisconsin/Eau Claire, speaker

Thursday, February 18th / 7:00 pm

Zoom Link: http://bit.ly/2XZS9H0

CONTACT: Roger Egolf [rae4@psu.edu]

Every student of organic chemistry for the last four decades, at least, has learned two empirical rules: Markovnikov's Rule for electrophilic addition to alkenes, and Zaitsev's Rule for base elimination of alkyl halides. The other thing about Markovnikov and Zaitsev is that they hated each other, carrying on a life-long feud that I contend led, in part, to Zaitsev's Rule. The careers of these two fascinating individuals will be highlighted in this talk, along with my perspective on the origins of their eponymous rules and of the feud.

Lehigh Valley ACS Webinar

Thursday, January 14, 2021; 7:00 p.m.

Can you answer the following questions (no fair consulting the internet) …

 “What does ‘S.C.R.A.M’ stand for?”

 “You have four relatively low-level radioactive cookies: one is an alpha particle, the second is a beta particle, the third is a gamma ray, and the fourth is a neutron.  You must eat one, put one in your pocket, keep one in your hand, and throw one away.  Which is which?”

No? Why not join our webinar by nuclear chemist Bob Artz!
