2019 Chemistry Conclave

Florida Institute of Technology's ACS Student Chapter recently hosted the Florida American Chemical Society 2019 Symposium for Synthetic Chemistry. This symposium is part of the Annual Florida Chemistry Conclave series. The Symposium featured keynote speaker Dr. Aaron Aponick from the University of Florida (pictured left). His seminar, StackPhos: From structural curiosity to enantioselective catalysis, followed the synthetic chemistry theme of the symposium. Students gave oral presentations of their research as well.

The event included hands-on demonstrations of outreach events performed by ACS student chapters at Florida Tech and other schools (pictured right) followed by a lab safety, seminar by Florida Tech's Dr. Joel Olson. If your ACS student chapter is interested in presenting an outreach demonstration, please email Ryan Bryant (rbryant2017@my.fit.edu) to reserve a lab bench or a fume hood. Students will also have the opportunity to present their current research. If you would like to present your research, please email our Chapter President, Audrey Preston (apreston2016@my.fit.edu). Visit the Chemistry Conclave website and their pages on Instagram and Facebook for more information about the event.
