Chemistry and the Environment (Part 2) [F-17-14]
|Presenter:||Samuel Tartakoff, Lisa Kozodov, Nicole Rosenberg|
|Location:||SLU: Johnson 307|
|Classes:||1 Session 1.5 hours|
|Dates:||Fri 3:00 PM 10/27|
As we did in last fall’s look at chemistry and its environmental impact, we will also be using some basic chemistry concepts, relating them to the world around us. Specifically, we will look at energy consumption and how it impacts other facets of the environment, including ozone depletion, climate change, and atmospheric pollution. There will be a mix of demonstrations, followed by discussion to show the importance of chemistry in our everyday lives. The format will involve two groups that will rotate between stations.
Samuel Tartakoff is a professor at St. Lawrence University. He received his PhD in organic chemistry from the University of California – Irvine. Samuel teaches general and organic chemistry, and conducts research into new chemical reactions and potential medicines. The other presenters (Liza Kozodov and Nicole Rosenberg) are chemistry and biology students from SLU who have been researching the topics that we will be discussing.
