I am an organic chemist working in research and development on the identification of novel lubricant additives and manufacturing scale-up of specialty chemical production at Lubrizol. My specific interest in the IYC 2011 is to encourage the interest of young people in chemistry to help build the foundation for continuing the significant contributions chemistry makes to the world. Towards this end, I and my wife, a teacher, are coordinating a six week Science Enrichment Program for grades 3 - 8 cognitively-gifted students in our local school district focusing each week on one of the following areas of chemistry: organic, analytical, inorganic, physical, biochemistry, and polymer/materials science. This program was awarded an ACS Bridging the Gap Nano-Grant for Celebrating IYC 2011.
