Western Carolinas ACS Microwave Technology Seminar
Join CEM's Leah Robinson for a microwave technology seminar at the Western Carolinas ACS Local Section meeting! Microwave technology is rapidly becoming a common tool in manufacturing quality control processes, chemical analysis, and the synthesis of therapeutic drugs. This faster, greener, and more efficient technology has enabled scientists in academia and industry to realize shorter reaction times, improveyield, and access new chemical space as compared to conventional synthetic methods. Microwaves have also been successfully integrated into over 1,000 academic laboratories; many institutions are incorporating microwave-assisted experiments into their teaching and research labs as a way to expand course curriculums and introduce green chemistry principles to students early in their academic careers.
The seminar will be held at the Harrington-Peachtree Center at Presbyterian College in Clinton, South Carolina on Tuesday, February 19, 2019 at 6 pm. This event is hosted by the Western Carolinas ACS chapter, and an RSVP is required for the seminar and dinner by Thursday, February 14.
