Making the materials and therapeutics of the future, synthetic chemists synthesize and discover new molecules by twisting bonds and stereocenters at their will. Come join us to learn from Professor Tim Newhouse how the real Walter Whites of the world manipulate organic molecules to get rich.
Yale Scientific Magazine’s /Synapse/ will lead fun demonstrations from 10am - 11am and the talk will take place from 11am - noon. Science on Saturdays is hosted by Professor Kurt Zilm.
Science on Saturdays is an award-winning lecture series that features scientists whose passion for their work inspires us all. Each event involves a lecture by a Yale professor and engaging science demonstrations by Yale college students. Science on Saturdays provides an opportunity for Yale scientists and residents of New Haven and beyond to come together over a shared sense of wonder. Past topics have included “Why Birds Are Dinosaurs,” “Nu Frontiers in Neutrino Physics,” and “Chaperonins: Molecular Origami Machines.”
