Each month, and often more frequently, a chemist from industry or academia presents a seminar on his or her research as part of our Departmental Seminar Series. Ph.D. candidates who are close to graduation also present seminars on their work in Departmental or Divisional Seminars, and newer graduate students present within their division. For a list of upcoming seminars please see below.

Upcoming Chemistry Department Seminars

Friday, April 16, 2021 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm

Reaction Profiling in Unlimited Detail: Applications of Online HPLC

Speaker/Presenter: Dr. Jason Hein
Location: Zoom

Abstract: Process analytical technology (PAT) plays an essential role in understanding and optimization chemical manufacturing routes by furnishing data-dense reaction profiles. However, each PAT tool presents certain limitations with respect to chemical component resolution, reaction compatibility or useful operational domain. High-pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC) represents one of the most versatile analytical tools available for providing detailed reaction progress analysis.
