Nobel Prize in Chemistry

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 8 ottobre 2010

Washington, Ei-ichi Negishi, Ph.D., who just shared the 2010 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, will lead a Chemical & Engineering News (C&EN) webinar Oct. 12 on  the discovery, development and application of the famed ZACA reaction. C&EN is the weekly newsmagazine of the American Chemical Society (ACS), the world’s largest scientific society. That landmark chemical reaction provides new ways of making medicines and other key products using green chemistry methods, which minimize or avoid the use of potentially toxic substances. ZACA stands for zirconium-catalyzed asymmetric carboalumination of alkenes. The webinar, sponsored by Aldrich Chemistry, will be broadcast live from Purdue University, West Lafayette, Ind., at 9:30 a.m. EDT as part of a the fifthannual two-day Negishi-Brown and Catalytic Asymmetric and Other Selective Syntheses (CAOSS) Lectures. Stu Borman, deputy assistant managing editor of C&EN, will moderate the session. The American Chemical Society is a nonprofit organization chartered by the U.S. Congress. With more than 161,000 members, ACS is the world’s largest scientific society and a global leader providing access to chemistry-related research through its multiple databases, peer-reviewed journals and scientific conferences. Its main offices are in Washington, D.C., and Columbus, Ohio.
