Edinburgh Instruments announce a Lectureship in Photophysics and Photochemistry to be held at Duke University.
The first in this series will be held in the James F. Bonk Lecture Hall in the French Family Science Center at Duke University on January 22nd, 2016. The lecture will be open to the general public, as are all lectures at Duke University.
The featured speaker will be Professor Richard Eisenberg, Tracy Harris Professor Emeritus and Professor (Research) at the University of Rochester. Prof. Eisenberg focuses mainly on inorganic and organometallic chemistry, catalysis, and photochemistry involved in solar energy conversion.
His recent research has looked at luminescent square planar complexes and their incorporation into molecular assemblies for photoinduced charge separation, the photogeneration of hydrogen from water, the design of new electrophilic catalysts for electrocyclizations and tandem organic transformations, and the development of parahydrogen induced polarization for hydrogen addition reactions.
In 2005, Eisenberg was elected as a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and has since been elected a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and a Member of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, for whom he recently became an Associate Editor for Proceedings.
Edinburgh Instruments will be offering all students and visitors the chance to meet the speaker at the lecture.
