About this Event

The Rochester ACS Annual Recognition Dinner will be held Tuesday, October 15. Please plan on joining us at the Brook House Restaurant (920 Elmridge Center Dr, Rochester, NY) to recognize the accomplishments of our local section members as well as our 50-, 60-, and 70-year ACS members. Join us for dinner, award presentations and lecture.

The featured speaker will be Dr. Richard Eisenberg, Tracy Harris Professor Emeritus and Professor of Chemistry at the University of Rochester. Dr. Eisenberg's talk is titled Going Forward and Looking Back: One Chemist's Take.

Abstract:

Basic science lies at the foundation of meeting many of tomorrow's technological challenges including energy for a sustainable future. Both light-to-chemical energy conversion and renewable energy storage represent subjects in which significant effort and notable accomplishments have been made. Activities from the Eisenberg laboratory and elsewhere will be discussed with regard to developing new artificial photosynthetic systems based on water splitting. These studies involve new light absorbers and catalysts, and provide clues to different steps in the energy conversion process, as well as sources of system instability. Great challenges exist in how to connect these and related scientific discoveries in renewable energy storage to technology and implementation. How to facilitate this process is essential as the timetable for extensive decarbonization grows shorter. The speaker will also look back at more than 50 years of active research, and as an editor, will discuss changes in how the story of chemistry is told.
