Ohio University hosts Inorganic Chemistry Conference this weekend
Campus welcomes attendees from across the region to discuss new findings

ATHENS, Ohio (Nov. 16, 2006) -- Researchers from across the region will convene in Athens this weekend to discuss and present cutting-edge research findings in the field of inorganic chemistry.

Assistant professors Mike Jensen and Jeff Rack from Ohio University's Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry are hosting the seventh Ohio Inorganic Weekend this Friday and Saturday, Nov. 17 and Nov. 18, in Walter Hall on the Athens campus.

Friday evening features a poster session from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Walter Hall Rotunda where approximately 45 posters and 15 research presentations will fuel discussion on current issues. Saturday's session highlights research presentations from undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral researchers beginning at 8:30 a.m. in Walter Hall 245.

"Cutting-edge research in areas such as nano-materials, nano-science, nano-medicine, catalysis and electron transfer done by inorganic chemists throughout Ohio and our neighboring states is what the conference is all about," Rack said. "We're really looking forward to seeing the work of our fellow researchers."

This annual meeting draws colleagues from universities such as Ohio State, Akron, Cincinnati, Toledo, Case Western, Virginia Tech, Kentucky and Michigan, among many others to Ohio University.
