Home > Press > Kavli Lectures: The art of building small and innovating for industrial impact

Abstract:
The art of molecular nanoscience and innovation in polymeric materials for industrial use will be the topics of a pair of Kavli Lectures at the American Chemical Society (ACS) Fall 2020 Virtual Meeting & Expo. The meeting will take place Aug. 17-20 with the theme of “Moving Chemistry From Bench to Market.”

Kavli Lectures: The art of building small and innovating for industrial impact

Washington, DC | Posted on August 7th, 2020

These presentations, among more than 6,000 scheduled to take place during the meeting, will be held on Tuesday, Aug. 18, and Wednesday, Aug. 19, 8-9 a.m. PDT (11 a.m.-noon EDT) on the virtual conference platform. The Kavli Lecture Series, which is supported by the Kavli Foundation, promotes groundbreaking discoveries and public understanding of how chemistry can help provide solutions to the world’s most challenging issues.

On Tuesday, Aug. 18, 8-9 a.m. PDT (11 a.m.-noon EDT), Bryan Barton, Ph.D., will present the Kavli Foundation Emerging Leader in Chemistry Lecture, “Innovator’s guide to industrial impact.” Barton is a research group leader at DuPont Electronics & Imaging, where he leads a team developing new materials for chemical mechanical planarization, or CMP, a key process in semiconductor fabrication. His body of research has focused on developing new materials through chemistry, having previously developed a carbon-fiber manufacturing process for the automotive industry — and now in his current role at DuPont, novel polyurethane chemistries for the semiconductor industry.

On Wednesday, Aug. 19, 8-9 a.m. PDT (11 a.m.-noon EDT), Ben L. Feringa, Ph.D., will present the Fred Kavli Innovations in Chemistry Lecture, “Art of building small.” Feringa is the Jacobus H. van't Hoff distinguished professor of molecular sciences at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands and a recipient of the 2016 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work on the design and synthesis of molecular machines. His research is inspired by nature’s principles of molecular assembly, which his team is working to replicate in synthetic chemistry to build “smart” drugs, responsive materials and other technologies on the molecular level.

About American Chemical Society
The American Chemical Society (ACS) is a nonprofit organization chartered by the U.S. Congress. ACS’ mission is to advance the broader chemistry enterprise and its practitioners for the benefit of Earth and its people. The Society is a global leader in providing access to chemistry-related information and research through its multiple research solutions, peer-reviewed journals, scientific conferences, eBooks and weekly news periodical Chemical & Engineering News. ACS journals are among the most cited, most trusted and most read within the scientific literature; however, ACS itself does not conduct chemical research. As a specialist in scientific information solutions (including SciFinder® and STN®), its CAS division powers global research, discovery and innovation. ACS’ main offices are in Washington, D.C., and Columbus, Ohio.
