I’m pleased to say this year has been a successful one for the KLS, culminating with being nominated for four Chemluminary awards. Out of those four nominations, we earned three this past month at the ACS national meeting in Washington D.C. One of the amazing things our section does is hold meetings each month during the academic year where current chemical research is presented. This month is no exception. Please join us — we’ll be treated to a presentation from John Hershberger of Arkansas State regarding the development of a cross-coupling and Biginelli reaction sequence leading to new bioactive derivatives. Students interested in graduate school are especially encouraged to attend!
