New American Chemical Society video series: Conversations with Celebrated Scientists
Date:1/8/2013

The American Chemical Society (ACS), the world's largest scientific society, today launched a new video series that will feature noted scientists discussing the status of knowledge in their fields, their own research, and its impacts and potential impacts on society. Chemistry over Coffee: Conversations with Celebrated Scientists is available at www.acs.org/ChemistryOverCoffee.

The launch episode features Chad Mirkin, Ph.D., and Paul Weiss, Ph.D., internationally known leaders in nanotechnology. Mirkin, director of Northwestern University's International Institute for Nanotechnology, discusses his research on using gold particles to create promising new medical diagnostic tools. These tools could lead to future cancer treatments and ways to diagnose and treat diseases at earlier stages. Mirkin's technological discoveries are making an impact world-wide in more than 30 commercial products. They continue to foster advances chemistry, biology, medicine, materials science and other fields.

Weiss, director of the California Nanosystems Institute and editor-in-chief of the journal ACS Nano, focuses on atomic-scale properties of surfaces and complex molecular structures. His team's work helps scientists understand and control chemistry and materials at the smallest scales. It promises to lead to improved nanofabrication techniques and molecular machines for use in medicine, engineering and materials.

Future episodes of Chemistry over Coffee will feature in-depth conversations with other world-renowned chemists and other scientists discussing their work and the state of their field.
