  • Molecular Structures in Chemistry and Biology

    This course will consist of a survey of historical developments and concepts of three dimensional structures of molecules. The course will conclude with a survey of the current state of the art of structure determination and 3D structure motifs for small molecules, nanomaterials and biological macromolecules. This freshman only seminar will be strictly limited to a maximum of 19 students.
