Our faculty provide teaching and research expertise in all major areas of Chemistry
Dr Michael Emptage: we have just learned of the passing of Dr Michael Emptage on May 5, 2017 in Loveland Colorado. Mike was a physical chemist with a speciality in statistical thermodynamics who was part of a group of young physical chemists who brought a modern rigorous approach to teaching and research to the department in the late 1960's and early 1970's.
The Department offers weekly seminars by faculty from departments throughout the United States and beyond describing the latest advances in their fields.
Departmental Seminars are held in the Van Lente Auditorium (Neckers 240) at 4:00 pm unless otherwise indicated.
