NMR workshops - May 23 and 24, 2013

NMR Workshops

Introductory 2 Day NMR Workshops scheduled for the mornings of Thursday May 23 and Friday May 24, 9am to noon each day.

This introductory workshop is geared toward undergraduate students and/or graduate students with limited (or no) NMR experience, but who are expected to make use of the NMR spectrometers as part of their research projects. The workshop is meant as a supplement to the "one on one" training that new students receive and will allow an opportunity to go into greater depth on many topics. The schedule will consist of a lecture to start each day followed by hands-on learning sessions where participants will get the opportunity to make NMR samples as well as to collect and process NMR data.

The workshop is free of charge to members of the Dept. of Chemistry and Biochemistry; however, enrollment is limited, so please register soon!

Public lecture to explore organic electronics - May 15, 2013 at 7:30 p.m.

Organic electronics is generating interest not only in the science community but in the business world as well. Its current market of about one billion dollars is expected to grow to $45 billion by 2016.

In a free presentation entitled “Organic Electronics: From Serendipitous Discovery to Market,” Holger Eichhorn will provide some of the facts behind the buzz.

The public is invited to join the discussion on Wednesday, May 15, for a journey from the early beginnings of organic electronics to today’s and tomorrow’s printable, flexible, and stretchable organic electronic devices. The free public session starts at 7:30 p.m. at Canada South Science City, 930 Marion Avenue.

Dr. Eichhorn is an associate professor of chemistry at the University of Windsor. His research group studies self-assembling organic and nanostructured materials with applications to chemical sensors, drug delivery, and advanced electronic devices.

The event is part of the Science Café series, which offers discussion of important science research for the general public.
