Symposium at the Spring 2012 ACS meeting in San Diego
We organized a Symposium on Nanostructured Electronic Materials at the San Diego ACS meeting (March 25-28, 2012). The symposium, which is jointly sponsored by CNEM and the ACS Divisions of Inorganic and Organic Chemistry, featured three sessions over a day and a half. The speakers were a mix of academic, industrial, and government leaders in molecular electronics, nanomaterials and closely related fields.
Confirmed speakers include Phaedon Avouris, Hongyou Fan, Steve George, Greg Girolami, Mark Hersam, Marcus Lay, Charlie Lieber, Theresa Mayer, Richard McCreery, Charles Musgrave, Colin Nuckolls, Teri Odom, John Randall, Mark Ratner, Rod Ruoff, Alberto Salleo, Jim Tour, Amy Walker, David Wei, Paul Weiss, Stan Williams and Stan Wong.
- Greg Girolami served as curator for an exhibit on crystallography that was held at the Rare Book Library at the University of Illinois
April – July 2012. The exhibit commemorated the 100th anniversary of the discovery of X-ray diffraction – the basis of our modern understanding of the structure of matter. For the permanent record of the exhibit, see http://www.scs.illinois.edu/~mainzv/xray_exhibit/.
