Chemistry professor Jim Hutchison's 29-minute talk at the 237th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society in Salt Lake City in March has been made available by way of an ACS experiment that captured selected keynote sessions. Hutchison, also the University of Oregon's associate vice president for research and strategic initiatives, spoke on the intersection of nanotechnology and green chemistry.
The ACS project provides audio of the talk and incorporates Hutchison's colorful slideshow presentation, allowing the listener/viewer to follow the presentation as he describes how green chemistry can be utilized in the nanotechnology process.
Hutchison heads the Safer Nanomaterials and Nanomanufacturing Initiative of the Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute (ONAMI). He is a nationally recognized leader in the promotion of using green-chemistry principles in the rapidly emerging field.
Hutchison's presentation, "A proactive approach to advancing applications and reducing implications of nanotechnology," was part of the Kavli Foundation's ACS Presidential Plenary Symposium on Challenges in Nanoscience.
