Nathan Attends 2023 ACS Green Chemistry Conference in Golden, CO

Nathan Rackstraw, an upcoming fourth-year graduate student, applied for and was accepted to the 2023 ACS Summer School on Green Chemistry & Sustainable Energy in Golden, CO, from July 12-18. He describes the week-long learning event fully funded by ACS as follows. “Every day there were guest lecturers from all around the Western Hemisphere and time for networking and hiking. We learned about a variety of topics from battery manufacturing and solar energy to life cycle analysis and new solvents for organic synthesis and separations. I gained a lot of new friends and came away with plenty of fresh ideas for my research. I’d highly recommend the program for anyone interested in learning and becoming a part of the green chemistry community!” Nathan snapped the photo while hiking by Golden, CO.
