Spring 2013 Chemistry/Physics Seminar Series
Dongwhan Lee, associate professor of chemistry at Indiana University, will visit Buffalo State to present his group research, "Making, Twisting, and Breaking Chemical Bonds: Mechanism-Based Design of Molecular Sensors and Switches," on Thursday, March 7, at 12:30 p.m. in Science Building 272. Before his talk, he will meet with Buffalo State students in Science and Math Complex 201 from 11:00 to 11:40 a.m. Lee received his Ph.D. in inorganic chemistry from MIT under the guidance of Stephan J. Lippard. After he completed postdoctoral training in Timothy Swager's lab at MIT, he joined Indiana University in 2003. The abstract of his talk appears below.
This seminar is sponsored by the Auxiliary Services Grant Allocation Committee, the Vice President for Student Affairs Office, and the Faculty-Student Association.
An increasing number of functional materials are built with π-conjugated chemical architectures. The practical utility of such constructs derives from rich optical and
