Graduate Student Symposium, Clarkson University,
Dec. 17, 2014, Hubert Bilan.


Department of Chemistry & Biomolecular Science Seminar,
Clarkson University, Nov.14, 2014, Darpan Aulakh and Mario Wriedt.


Dr. Charles Campana (Bruker AXS, Madison, WI) visited Clarkson on Oct. 22-24, 2014. He presented a general introduction into X-ray Crystallography within the Department of Chemistry & Biomolecular Seminar Series. The other days he held intense work-shops with focus on problem crystal structure and twin refinements. Thank you very much to Christian and Chuck for their  inspiring presentations and lectures!


Prof. Dr. Christian Näther (University of Kiel, Germany) visited Clarkson on Sep. 17-25, 2014. During his stay he presented about his research on drug polymorphism and magnetic coordination polymers at the David A. Walsh ‘67 Arts & Sciences Seminar Series and the Department of Chemistry & Biomolecular Seminar Series respectively. The former seminar was co-sponsored by the American Chemical Society Northern New York Section.

He also held a campus-wide seminar on single crystal and powder X-ray diffraction and a workshop on problem crystal structure refinements. You can find video recordings of his lectures here.

His visit was completed with an exciting 10 hour hike on NY’s highest peak, Mt. Marcy (5,344 ft elevation).


Dr. Wriedt Organized Summer Academy in Switzerland

Organizers Dr. Wriedt (third from right) and Dr. Sculley (first from left) and their group of students from the German National Academic Foundation.

Invited from the German National Academic Foundation, Dr. Wriedt and Dr. Sculley organized a two-week workshop on advanced porous materials and their placement within our energy landscape. The workshop was held in Leysin, Switzerland from August 10-23, 2014.

Their discussions were focused on carbon capture materials and a future hydrogen/methane economy.
