Missouri Inorganic Day is a one-day conference that hosts faculty, students and postdocs from Missouri and neighboring states like Kansas, Arkansas and Oklahoma.
It is held in Missouri each year at different universities. This year it was at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri.
Several students attended the conference on April 27:
- Seth Adu
- Brett Lottis
- Patricia McDaniel
- Kevin Pinks
- Cody Turner
Pinks and Turner presented posters.
Dr. Nikolay Gerasimchuk, professor of chemistry, gave a talk entitled, “Structural Chemistry of Azulenes.”
“It is a very nice friendly gathering of students, postdocs and research active faculty members,” Gerasimchuk said. “The event is a good practice ground for presentations for students and a good forum for professors to present recent news from their research laboratories.”
