William G. Dauben Lecture: A Polymer Chemistry of Graphenes and Graphene Nanoribbons

Seminar: Organic Chemistry | March 7 | 11 a.m.-12 p.m. |  Pitzer Auditorium, 120 Latimer Hall

 Prof. Klaus Mullen, Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research, Mainz

 College of Chemistry

Carbon materials are of immense practical importance, but are often known as structurally ill-defined “black stuff” such as soot. Graphenes and graphene nanoribbons (GNRs), their geometrically restricted cutouts, are new additions to the carbon family which are widely praised as multifunctional wonder materials and rich playgrounds for physicists. Indeed, graphenes hold enormous promise as...   More >

Student Hosted Colloquium: Understanding Hydration, One Water Molecule at a Time

Seminar | March 7 | 4-5 p.m. |  Pitzer Auditorium, 120 Latimer Hall

 Prof. Francesco Paesani, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, UC San Diego

 College of Chemistry

Two of the most challenging problems at the intersection of electronic structure theory and molecular dynamics simulations are the accurate representation of intermolecular interactions and the development of reduced-scaling algorithms applicable to large systems. To some extent, these two problems are antithetical, since the accurate calculation of non-covalent interactions typically requires...   More >

Mendeley Citation Management Workshop

Workshop | March 7 | 4-5 p.m. | Valley Life Sciences Building, 2101, Bioscience Library Training Room

 Becky Miller, Bioscience and Natural Resources Library


Mendeley is a reference manager that enables you to organize, read, share, annotate, and cite your research papers. It is also an academic discovery and collaboration tool.

This hands-on workshop will give beginning Mendeley users practice importing citations and creating bibliographies. Experienced users should bring their Mendeley questions!
