Chemistry 5.001

Chemists Have Solutions!

Register for Chemistry 5.001, a new 3-unit spring “exploratory subject” on Frontiers in Molecular and Material Science. Learn how chemists are addressing some of the most important problems facing modern society.

Through guest lectures, visits to local startup companies, meetings with MIT alumni, and lab tours, we will examine how experimental and computational chemistry is the basis for:

  • The design and invention of new pharmaceutical agents and new chemical technology to improve human health

  • The design and synthesis of new materials with novel and unprecedented properties

  • The development of cleaner sources of energy through the discovery of new battery chemistry

  • Advances in technology of nanofabrication, energy storage and sensing

Tuesdays, 1:00 – 3:00pm Spring 2019.
