The Story of Chemistry




6:30 PM - 8:30 PM


Presented in partnership with the Duke University Alpha Pi chapter of Phi Lambda Upsilon and the Chemical Heritage Foundation


The Story of Chemistry from the 18th Century to Today: Great Names, Great Steps

Looking back over the last three centuries of chemistry, CHF President Thomas R. Tritton will highlight ten key discoveries—and the individuals who made them—that led to the formation of modern day chemistry.

The challenge, of course, is in deciding who makes the top ten. Tritton looks forward to a lively debate about the wisdom (or lack thereof) of his choices. 

Reception to follow. Learn more at the event website.
