My wife Sally (also a chemist and ACS member ) and I give fun talks on the chemistry of chocolate as public outreach, Chocolate -Food of the Gods
I have been an ACS tour speaker and we have been enrichment lecturers
on Cunard's Queen Mary 2 and on Princess Cruise ships.
The talk (with Howard's voice over) and most slides were recorded by the national ACS at the meeting on Aug 17 in Washington DC. That version is on the web.
We will jointly share the Harry and Carol Mosher Award on Jan 21, 2010 iof the ACS Santa Clara (Silicon) Valley Local Section
www.scvacs.org for the next Jan 21 meeting.
For those attendees who stay to the "bitter" end, there is a free drawing for a ten pound bar of dark "bittersweet" chocolate.
