Congratulations to Prof. Weitao Yang who presented the "Inaugural Pariser-Parr Lecture in Chemistry" at the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill on September 22, 2014! Pictured below are Prof. Yang (left), Dr. Pariser (center) and Prof. Parr (right).
Alumni and friends of the Duke Chemistry Department were invited to attend the naming ceremony of the James F. Bonk Lecture Hall on Friday, October 3, in the French Science Center. Many alumni, friends and University members joined the Department for a reception in front of the French Family Science Center and we were happy to celebrate the legacy of Jim Bonk!
A highly interdisciplinary team, lead by Profs. Therien (Chemistry) Yoshizumi (Health Physics) and Chino (Radiation Oncology), are incorporating nano-crystals into a nano-scintillator fiber optic dosimeter – a device that measures radiation doses in real-time and could prove to be of extraordinary value in the clinic.
