ATTN: Special Seminar Opportunity
John Ellis, Chemistry Professor at the University of Minnesota, will be making a presentation on “Recent Developments in Low-Valent Transition Metal Chemistry” in the Chemistry 252 class this Friday, January 22 at 10:40 a.m. Dr. Ellis, who received the F. Albert Cotton Award in Synthetic Inorganic Chemistry in 2004 and was named Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry in 2008, has been a member of the University of Minnesota Chemistry Department for more than 35 years. He is an enthusiastic and engaging speaker as well as the leading authority on highly reduced organometallic complexes. Attending his presentation will count toward the seminar requirement for juniors and seniors, but space is limited because of the size of the classroom (Regents 435). If you are planning to attend, please sign up on the seminar sheet outside of Dr. Miessler’s office, Regents 330. It is possible that Dr. Ellis's presentation may last more than an hour but it should be finished by noon; those receiving seminar credit are expected to remain until the presentation is finished.
