Ten Commandments for being a Successful Scientist Tanya Fogg   |   added on Apr 05, 2011    |    United States Some believe the successful were simply “lucky,” but what is luck? Luck, some define, is when preparation meets opportunity. And many weary scientists have wondered how to find that opportunity. Look no further – join ACS Webinars™ and our speaker, Professor Darren Griffin, of the University of Kent, UK, as he reveals ten e

Creative Problem Solving in Chemical Research Tanya Fogg   |   added on Apr 05, 2011    |    United States Chemists are expected to solve problems that involve obtaining new research ideas, improving processes and production in industry, or dealing with problems that arise during research. Too often, we apply a random process or follow the same way - and receive poor results. Dr. Bill Mattson, will engage you in an interactive pre
