Some of the major challenges faced by researchers (and in particular – organic and analytical chemists) include the need to quickly determine reaction kinetics as well as gain sufficient information to fully understand, characterize and optimize chemical reactions. This is leading researchers to find innovative ways to obtain the information they require to successfully complete their work.
During the March 30 online seminar – Innovative Methods for Teaching Chemical Kinetic Experimentation, John R. Sowa Jr., Professor of Organic and Organometallic Chemistry at Seton Hall University, will discuss how to perform basic kinetic experiments. The methodology that Professor Sowa will present can be used in both academia and industry.
Notable publications by Professor Sowa include:
